MSc Integrative Psychotherapy, UKCP

About me

I offer confidential counselling and psychotherapy sessions, to help people discover and change what is getting in the way of a more fulfilling life. 

My approach is to work in a collaborative way with you, to identify your goals for therapy & how we will know we have achieved them. Sessions can be time limited or longer term according to what you need. People seek out therapy for many reasons, and as an integrative therapist I draw on a variety of methods to help you feel seen and heard, and empowered to make the changes you want to.

I work with clients on issues such as coping with change, relationship difficulties, abuse & trauma, loss & grief, anxiety & worry, anger, low mood & depression, stress & work-related issues, personal growth & self discovery.

I have experience working in a variety of professional settings to meet different needs for different people. My clinical experience includes: NHS, employee assistance programmes, probation service, mental health charities and private practice.

If you would like to book a session or simply find out more about what therapy can offer you, do get in touch.

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.
