About me

I believe that people work through issues in their own way when they are ready to. There can be a lot of experiences that have brought you to the stage you are at in your life where you have decided to access counselling.

Over the years I have become more interested in working with images as a useful way to support people in their process. Working with art can be a more spontaneous, creative way of working and a useful tool for expression and self-awareness.

I follow the person-centred approach when working with art. This means that I don’t interpret but offer an empathic, non-judgemental relationship from which we can explore your image work. As we explore, messages can bubble to the surface, a subconscious communication all dressed up visually from you to yourself. It’s important to go at your pace, and to wait for your meanings to emerge.

When someone let’s go and immerses themselves in their image process, then something special may happen. From that expression and exploration, your self-awareness may grow and, from that you may become more able to take the steps towards creating change in your life.

I have worked in range of settings from community to general practitioners and prisons. I have worked with a wide spectrum of people with different life experiences in both one to one and group work. I have extensive experience of supporting people who are caught up in addiction as they take stock of their situation and consider their process to secure change.

As a member of BACP I abide by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy which can be found at www.bacp.co.uk/ethical_framework.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
