About me

There are times in life, when we need someone to turn to, who can help us to make sense of things and cope with difficult feelings or situations. If you are in need of support, feeling alone, in distress, or have issues which are troubling you, therapy can help.

Psychotherapy involves an exploration of self, with a trusted and skilled therapist. It is about looking deeper at the cause of what is troubling you, as well as looking at ways to manage the present. We often need to process our experiences and emotions if they are affecting us in the present, so that they can be laid to rest. In addition, our attachment style (how we attach to others), based on early attachments, can affect our relationships. This and many other aspects of self are explored in psychotherapy. The relationship between the client and therapist is most important. The therapist needs to be someone you connect with and feel comfortable with; someone who understands you and cares.

My training is in Integrative (and Transpersonal) Psychotherapy, which means that I work with a variety of different therapeutic models and apply these according to the individual. I also have a degree in Psychology. I work with the past, the present and the unconscious. I use bodywork, visualisations and drawing, if the client is comfortable with this and where appropriate. I am open to all things and believe that we are all unique. I am sensitive and compassionate and have a great deal of life experience, which enables me to understand another's pain.

Therapy can also be used for personal growth. It can enable us to understand ourselves better and what we are seeking from life; it can help us to find meaning.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
