I am an Integrative Therapist, meaning I adapt my practice to reflect my clients' needs.
As your therapist, you will find me warm, encouraging and engaging. We will explore your issues together and I will provide a space for reflection with my direction.
I work with all issues through the lens of relationships (including the relationship with self) for it is through them that we form our identity and sense of self.
I believe we all have the capacity to change and reach our full potential. However, I see that our formative experiences and relationships also inform who we are. When these experiences and relationships feel unhealthy or unhelpful, they can cause conflict between the way we feel about and see ourselves and the way we want to feel and be seen. Through our work we will explore and make sense of these experiences to identify negative thought patterns, narratives, and internalised beliefs about self. We will then understand where you want to see change and together make that change a reality.
- I work with adults for up to 12 sessions through the NHS's Back on Track service across a range of issues such as family trauma, grief, general anxiety & depression, and disordered eating.
- I work through a Domestic Violence charity with young adults and adults on an open-ended basis who are dealing with the trauma from emotionally, physically, and psychologically abusive relationships.
Your first session:
- I will introduce myself and my approach as a therapist.
- We will explore what has brought you to therapy, your expectations of therapy and what you need from me as your therapist.
- We will agree on an initial goal for therapy to be revisited throughout our work together.
Training, qualifications & experience
Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling - CPPD
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.
