It can feel like a big decision to come into counselling, some issues feel too big and others too small...in light of this as a qualified experienced BACP registered humanistic counsellor, I create a safe, non-judgemental space to explore whatever your issues may be. I believe that exploring with someone else can be a positive step to begin to live with more choice, you don't have to stay trapped.
I take a holistic approach and value your individuality and your context – after all we all live complex lives. I believe ultimately you are your own best expert, but you might have got stuck somewhere, perhaps you have experienced difficult situations or troubling thoughts and emotions. Exploring together we can work to shift that stuckness and shift to living more fully.
Next steps...why not phone or email for a free 30min consultation. We can discuss what's you'd like to get from counselling and whether this feels like the right path for you. If it does, we can then arrange to meet weekly or fornightly for regular sessions.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified, experienced humanistic counsellor and a registered member of the BACP. I draw on a variety of theoretical perspectives, (including Gestalt, Person-Centred, Transactional Analysis, Attachment Theory) creative explorations and practical tools to help you better understand yourself and the choices you make in life.
As a BWY qualified yoga teacher I can also work with mindfulness and mediation as another form of support to develop.
I have experience of open-ended and time-limited therapy and have worked in private practice counselling organisations and an NHS setting. I have experience with a wide variety of clients and their issues including relationships, general anxiety, health anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, sadness, low mood, depression, suicidal ideation, loneliness and isolation, anger management, family conflicts, parenting problems and post-natal depression.
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.
