Squarepegness often is accompanied by or is masked by depression, anxiety, emotional rigidness. It can lead to work and relationship problems Exploring, recognising and slowly putting into practice what has been uncovered can be enough to move a client from being overloaded leading to meltdown or lack of headspace to an awareness that modifies your feeling of well being.
My counselling is drawn from the psychodynamic, humanistic and relational modalities to support you in being confident in your neurodiversity in a neurotypical world. My non-judgemental and confidential process, in a safe space, seeks to scaffold you preferencing a psycho-educational system embracing an understanding of "double empathy" and some solution-focused concepts.

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.
