Depression? Anxiety? Stressed? Panic attacks ? A troubled Relationship? Feeling stuck?
Life has a tendency to throw major challenges at us without warning. You may find yourself dealing with a specific life changing circumstance such as a bereavement, a traumatic experience, redeployment, relationship difficulties or redundancy to name a few. Sometimes being able to pin point feelings can be a little difficult. You may be experiencing feelings of being stuck and just unsure of how you currently feel about your life or a certain situation.
I work with how you are feeling in the "here and now" whilst respecting you and supporting issues with depression, anxiety, social anxiety, identity and life changing decisions which can at times feel overwhelming.
I provide an empathetic, safe, non judgmental and confidential space where you can feel respected and comfortable to open up and feel seen and heard for who you truly are as an individual.
Whilst counselling can help you to process complex and distressing thoughts and feelings, consider that therapy can also focus on the potential of you.
I use the Humanistic approach, which means I respect and encourage the autonomy of you as an individual.
I have worked with issues of:
Abuse, Anxiety,Brain injuries, Bereavement, Depression, Chronic Illness, Identity, Post Covid issues, Shame, Suicidal thoughts, Loss of a relationship from suicide, Guilt, Motor Neurone Disease, Post traumatic Stress Disorder, Sexual Identity, Redeployment and Trauma.*This list is not exhausted.
I adhere to the to the ethical framework of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
If you require any further information, please call, I am happy to give a FREE 15 minute initial consultation.
If you are concerned with travelling, I have practices in W1, E8 and NW2
Training, qualifications & experience
I have gained my experience as a therapist working in various locations. I have worked within the private sector, NHS, GP surgeries with complex and diverse issues and within charity organisations exclusively providing Bereavement counselling. I also work with students within Higher Education. I have also been employed to work with adults and children in major crisis situations.
I have a background of over 17 years working within the National Health Service (NHS) as a nurse. My experience as a psychotherapist and clinical supervisor gives me an understanding of the internal and external pressures people can put on themselves, which can lead to unhelpful or damaging coping strategies.
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.
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.
