Qualified Psychotherapist and Counsellor

About me

I am an integrative psychotherapist offering counselling, psychotherapy and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). I have worked as a counsellor and psychological therapist for various charitable organisations and the NHS. Since 2015 I worked as a private therapist seeing clients on a face to face basis. Recently I have moved my private practice online. I am also studying a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology and hope to qualify in 2022.

I take an integrative approach in my practice considering the needs of each of my clients, as unique human beings in the process of growing and developing. I hold that as humans we are shaped by our relationships (both past and present) and that it is through the therapeutic relationship that healing and change can occur.

In practice I thus seek to create and maintain a therapeutic relationship with each of my clients through non-judgemental inquiry, sensitive attunement, and authentic involvement.

Key influences on my approach and clinical practice include Kohut (self psychology), Bowlby (attachment theory), Kahn (psychodynamic), and Rogers (person-centred). I am also trained in CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) interventions, which I occasionally draw upon, if desired by the client.

I am a registered and accredited member of both the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and work in compliance with their ethical guidelines.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Further information

Welcome!

At certain points in our lives, any one of us can feel stuck, face challenges and frustrations, or have a sense of dissatisfaction in the way we live our lives. These difficulties can lead to depression, anxiety, distress, relationship breakdowns, and/or a fragmentation in our sense of self.

Making the decision to approach therapy is a positive one. Therapy can provide a professional, non-judgemental, safe space to explore, reflect and be heard, to gain clarity, and to challenge yourself. People from any age can grow and change from the experience of therapy.
