You may look to embark on psychotherapy/counselling in order to seek help with a particular problem or symptom, or wish to explore your life more comprehensively in the hope of achieving greater peace of mind, enhance creativity and joy, or to improve relationships both at home and at work.
Within the therapy process we look at familiar patterns of behaviour alongside present and past experiences to identify, understand and make meaning of what lies at the root of the problem you bring. Ultimately this enables news ways for personal and interpersonal change, greater stability and a calmer state of mind.
In an initial consultation we will discuss your needs and wishes to offer the best approach for you and your situation.
If you'd like to ask any questions about counselling please send me your contact details and I'll arrange to call you.
Training, qualifications & experience
Formerly involved in teaching and working with physical health I recognised conflicting attitudes, fears and repressed feelings directly influence the body and how we function. My approach now works as one, to understand the Mind-Body connection, appreciating unacknowledged body trauma can damage the mind-body relationship and our relationships with others. Our quality of life generally means integrating the body, emotions, mind and spiritual elements to empower and improve overall health and well-being.
My knowledge and skills draw primarily from my Psychotherapy Transactional Analysis qualification combined with other integrative and relational therapeutic methods, alongside the Yoga, Mindfulness and Meditation skills acquired throughout my 20+ years of practice.
My experience includes working in private and voluntary settings. I am a fully accredited UKCP Adult Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist, qualified Yoga teacher and Mindfulness Meditation Practitioner. I hold a full disclosure certificate to work with vulnerable people.
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
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).
