In response to COVID-19, I am now exclusively offering therapy over Skype so that people can stay within the safe confines of their home. During these unprecedented times, people are being met with unique challenges. I am here to provide a safe, empathetic space within which to explore uncertainties and anxieties and to try and find new ways of discovering meaning and fulfilment in the face of insecurity and fear.
I am an integrative psychotherapist who works with a wide range of issues. I do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to therapy and instead, recognise that every client is individual in their needs. I am therefore flexible in my approach, aiming to work in a way that is most beneficial for each client.
I provide a safe and confidential space within which to explore issues and expand awareness. In place of judgement, I offer a supportive environment in which to challenge pre-existing, debilitating thought-patterns and enable new choices and changes to be made. Together, we will examine what obstacles may be standing in the way of you fulfilling your potential and explore ways of finding a more fulfilling and authentic way of life.
Training, qualifications & experience
I gained my BA and MA at Cambridge University before undertaking my Foundation at The New School of Counselling and Psychotherapy and then my Postgraduate Diploma in Psychotherapy and Counselling at Regent’s University London.
I have experience of working as both a mental health group facilitator and individual practitioner. My experience has taught me that we are all unique, and yet we all have the potential to grow and flourish as long as we are given the right conditions under which to do so. Both my academic learning and personal experience has confirmed that it is the therapeutic relationship that is the crucible for change. It is my role to help clients recognize and remove the obstacles that may be standing in the way of living the life they want to live.
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Sometimes initially getting in touch can feel like the most daunting part of the process. You have the choice to get in touch via phone or email. We can then arrange an initial session in which we will discuss what you are looking for from the process and how we might best work together. I work with clients both short-term and long-term and so we can discuss what might work best for you.
