The relationship with my client is at the heart of my practice. My aim is to provide a safe, non-judgemental and warm space for you to talk through your issues and for you to be heard and understood. I believe that there is enormous power in formulating your own life story and put difficulties into words.
Talking therapy can give a person who is going through changes or difficulties – with self, family, love or work – some time to be heard and understood. It aims to help you make sense of thoughts and feelings that can be painful, confusing and lonely. My purpose as a psychotherapeutic counsellor is to work together with you and to help give you the strength to move forward.
My approach is integrative. This means that through training and experience I have developed a ‘tool kit’ of approaches that I tailor to my individual clients' needs, to help promote acceptance, understanding and growth. I believe in treating the whole person, and in the value of 'checking in' on everyday stresses as well as addressing deeper thoughts and feelings.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked for five years in non-profit settings and for the NHS with both brief and long-term clients, with issues including relationship issues, anxiety, depression and low mood, self-esteem issues, bereavement, and physical and psychological trauma. I work with adults, young adults from 16 and above, and older adults.
I have a Masters degree in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from Roehampton University and I am a registered member of BACP.
I undergo regular CPD workshops and attend regular supervision.
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).
