About me

It takes courage to ask for help.

As a skilled integrative Counselling Therapist I offer a safe, supportive and non-judgemental space to gently explore the difficulties that can cause us pain and suffering. In my practice, I use an individualised and integrative approach to empower my clients, develop skills and utilise the resources within to help face and resolve life’s challenges.

I also offer Clinical Supervision to practitioners, student practitioners and other professionals.

I work with a broad range of issues which include supporting personal development, cultural transitions, relationship issues, sexual issues, empowering change, life stages, coping skills and addictions, self-esteem, depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, bereavement, redundancy and work related problems, separation and divorce.

The focus of my work is to help my clients learn to trust themselves and realise their potential. It helps to identify and understand long held beliefs and assumptions that get in the way of our health, happiness and wellbeing. This discovery gives us permission to begin to question and evaluate the beliefs and assumptions that form barriers to our healthy self-development and happiness. 

To set up an initial free 20 minute session to discuss the help you need and what you want to get out of counselling please send me an email to info@myintegrativetherapy.com.  You can also email me via the contact form on my website www.myintegrativetherapy.com. I will be back in touch with you promptly. After our first session you can decide if you would like to set up further appointments.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Registered Professional Counsellor (RPC), Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and a Graduate Member of the British Psychological Society (MBPsS). Originally from Canada, I obtained my BA(Hons) Counselling Studies and MSc Psychology at the University of Plymouth in the UK, where I also completed my practicum training to become a Counselling Therapist and Clinical Supervisor.
 
I have worked within and across different cultures in different corporate professional roles throughout my life as well as with organisations such as Your Emergency Service, the Nighttime Emergency Outreach Network, the Women’s Rape and Sexual Assault Centre, Cornwall Rape and Sexual Assault Centre and the Penhaligon Counselling Agency. I currently maintain private practices in both the UK and Canada.

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.

Further information

Everyone is different and clients will respond in varying degrees to different therapeutic approaches. In my practice, drawing from relational person-centered, psychodynamic, emotion-focused and solution-focused theories, I endeavour to discover and apply which approach is most useful to you.

The focus of my work is to help my clients learn to trust themselves and realise their potential.  It helps to identify and understand long held beliefs and assumptions that get in the way of our health, happiness and wellbeing. This discovery gives us permission to begin to question and evaluate the beliefs and assumptions that form barriers to our healthy self-development and happiness.
