About me

Taking the first steps to find the right therapist may seem daunting, sharing your most personal thoughts and experiences can be a painful journey, along this journey I will listen to you, offer you a confidential, non-judgemental, empathic, safe space where I will help you work through, accept and move on from any issues you may have.  By providing a safe space we will enter into a therapeutic relationship where you hold the key to the next step towards personal growth, this can be life changing process.

I have been working with clients for 10 years, during this time I have worked with many clients from many different backgrounds.  I work with adults on a wide range of issues such as anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, stress, loss and bereavement.  I am an integrative counsellor using different theoretical approaches, Person Centred and Psychodynamic models, working in the moment and/or visiting the past connecting patterns of behaviour to the present.  Every client is an individual and I tailor my approach to meet your needs, we will work together at your own pace.

I offer long-term and short-term therapy for individuals on a weekly basis depending on the client’s needs.

Initial contact

I offer an initial 15 minute telephone conversation for you to tell me about your presenting issues, this will help you decide if I am the right counsellor for you.

The first session

In the first session, I will do an assessment, I will explain confidentiality and how I abide by the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice. I will ask you for some details for example: Name, address, contact details and an emergency contact.  We will discuss and read the terms of our contract with each other.  You will have time to ask any questions you may have.  This session can last 60-70 minutes.

Sessions

Sessions will be 50 minutes in duration.

Clients I work with:

Adults, Older adults, Young Adults and Trainee Students.

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.
