No two people are the same. Therapy needs to suit each client as an individual. That's why every therapy session is different.
Within the counselling space, be that in a room face-to-face or over a video call, I aim to provide the opportunity for each client to be heard. To provide a space without judgement and where the my goal is to encourage the client to find strength within themselves to keep pushing on when life throws obstacles in their path.
I consider it a privilege to walk alongside people as they work through how to best navigate their individual journey. The main focus for me is on the relationship between myself and the client; my belief is that where a client feels safe and heard, they can be open and honest.
Training, qualifications & experience
I began by completing my Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy before going on to do an Honours Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I work with clients from various backgrounds and differing presenting issues.
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.
