I am an Integrative Counsellor and Systemic Group Therapist. I work relationally, intersubjectively and through the body.
The things that bring us to therapy: feelings and memories that don't seem bearable, situations that feel hopeless, or a life that doesn't feel your own, these things are often hard to respond to. You may sometimes feel helpless in the face of what you feel or what has happened to you. To find a way through takes time, a feeling of safety and a trust in yourself and the world around you.
Therapy with me is a place of trust, collaboration and creativity. We will explore through conversation and through other forms of expression in order to uncover new ways to shift what is stuck. To heal what is wounded. So whilst therapy is firstly a place of safety, where we go to find the strength to rebalance and respond, it is also a place of creativity, where we work towards re-energising the system so that life can flourish, in whatever way is right for you.
I also work systemically, looking at how the systems we live within - family, societal and historical - have impacted us. What burdens, allegiances, and identifications we carry that are from other places, and do not belong to us. In therapy, systemic work may take place through dreamwork, active imagination, creative writing, movement or other non-linear ways of thinking and being.
Training, qualifications & experience
BACP accredited Integrative Counsellor and Systemic group therapist.
I have ten years of experience working 1-1 and with groups in a variety of settings.
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.
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.
