About me

I am a RELATE trained integrative, individual, couple and relationship counsellor. I believe that a trusting relationship between the client and counsellor is the 'Key' to successful theraputic experiences, leading to a positive impact on the client's life. I provide a non-judgemental, confidential, empathic and honest environment for my client.

As a counsellor, my role is to help my client to get unstuck, and move forward in life. I help my clients to find their voice in the sessions and explore their choices in life. I help my clients to find their own inner-power, resilience and confidence, and teach them how to find resources and support systems outside of the counselling room, so they will be confident to self-manage after therapy.

I provide a free 20 minute telephone consultation to get to know my clients prior to official sessions being booked.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Counselling Level 5 in Person-Centred counselling with Existential, Gestalt, CBT and psychodynamic approaches, with experience in short-term and long-term counselling. Although I explore their past with my clients, we always focus on being connected with the 'Here and Now'.

I also include Solution Focused therapy, Life Coaching and Cognative Behavioural Therapy to overcome life challenges.  I like to use different materials, skills and activities in the therapy room to tailor to each client's needs.

I have Relationship Diploma Level 5, having worked as a RELATE trained couple and relationships counsellor, I employ a systemic understanding of both an individual's and couple's situation. I have worked with clients experiencing attachment issues, commitment issues, miscommunications, intimacy issues, divorce,  separations, sexual problems, loss, betrayal, affairs, addictions, domestic violence, step family issues and other topics.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
