If you're looking for a Counsellor/Therapist then it's likely you're experiencing some kind of distress or unhappiness. This might be anxiety or depression or issues linked to work, relationships or maybe you've experienced a recent loss of some kind or have an unhealthy habit.
You'll be looking for someone who can be a compassionate listener but who also can help you to feel better.
I work from a contemporary perspective which means I am not fixed into one therapy approach but am able to draw on the most effective practices from many disciplines. So while talking and listening are key we might also work with the body with breathing and relaxation or acupressure tapping, with the power of the imagination with naturalistic trance and mental rehearsal and visualisation and many other approaches.
I work with the Rewind technique and EMDR for trauma and also Ego State Therapy.

Registered / Accredited
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.
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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
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.
