Stress; anxiety; depression; a sense of disconnection from the self, others and the world, and many other symptoms, can develop without a noticeable cause. For others there may be a clear connection between social, emotional and health-related issues and adverse life experiences or trauma.
I bring in different therapy approaches to work with clients and their difficulties. Understanding what is happening in our minds and bodies is an important part of this work. We can carefully notice body feelings and thoughts where they arise in our life and make sense of what that tells us.
Therapy sessions can provide space and time for:
- exploring what has been coming up for you
- learning about how the mind and body works (with optional reading offered)
- discovering mind and body resources that can support you
- processing body feelings and thoughts (with optional exercises offered)
Training, qualifications & experience
I have contributed to a number of academic publications and presented nationally and internationally, delivering training to educators and practitioners on child development, disability and trauma.
Having completed a Postgraduate MSc in Counselling & Psychotherapy, I am a Registered Member of the BACP. My Psychology studies and research are qualified to PhD level, granting Chartered Psychologist status with the British Psychological Society. I am also an Accredited Clinical Supervisor (BPS Approved Certificate, Level 2).
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
