In counselling I offer a welcoming, respectful, non-judgmental presence and aim to follow what works best for you. I believe every individual has a capacity for full potential and that crises can be opportunities for change and inner growth which can be transformative and teach us new ways to move forward, allowing us to live life more fully.
Psychosynthesis is a gentle and profound psychotherapy well suited to guiding those undergoing such an intense part of their personal journey. It treats the whole psychospiritual being – not just the personality; It can be deeply beneficial and soothing to those undergoing an intense or difficult part of their personal journey. Psychosynthesis counselling can bring healing and new meaning as we learn to bring more conscious awareness into our lives.
Psychosynthesis counselling draws on a myriad of ideas and techniques that foster personal and spiritual growth. Often as we undergo change, there are opportunities to find deeper meaning and purpose in our lives. Counselling with me provides a safe nurturing space to work with both the darkness and emerging light in our lives.
Training, qualifications & experience
My background is in education and the performing arts, and I have come to counselling because of the profound changes which counselling has brought to my life.
My training is as a psychosynthesis counsellor; I trained at the Psychosynthesis Trust in London, and am a registered member of BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists). I abide by the BACP code of ethics.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
The first introductory session is free.
During the current Coronavirus crisis, when I am very happy to see you via a video link, I am offering everyone a concessionary fee of £40 per session.
Normally as a BACP registered counsellor, I can offer affordable therapy at £50 per 50 minute session and I do continue to offer concessionary rates for those at need.
