I am a qualified Counsellor, specialising in Integrative Counselling Psychotherapy. My therapeutic approach to each client, is to bring together different elements of specific therapies such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic, Person-Centred, Humanistic Approach and Mindfulness. There is no single approach that can treat an individual in all situations. I take the view that each person needs to be considered and Integrative Therapy techniques must be tailored to his or her personal needs and circumstances holistically.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been working as a personal Therapist for over 10 years, with Counselling experience with clients from the age of 7 upwards. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Counselling (Integrative), Masters in Counselling Psychology and currently undertaking a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology. I have worked alongside such organisations as the Metropolitan Police Service in a public protection role.
I have also experienced working with different cultural diversity, non-binary, asylum seekers, and diverse sexual backgrounds, I believe it is very important to have a wealth of experience working with difference and diversity to help decrease unpleasant symptoms and supporting their capacity to live happy and fulfilling lives. I have counselled and mentored with different organisations, working with children, adolescents, and young adults, that needed support with education, home life, personal issues or where at risk of school/social exclusion.

I also have experience in working with PTSD, Depression, Anxiety Disorders, OCD, relationship problems, self-esteem problems, life changing problems, as well as trauma.
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.
