A difficult event from your past may be overwhelming you, causing you to question yourself constantly. Do you struggle to fully connect with the important people in your life? Would developing healthier boundaries and respect for yourself ease the stress of your daily experience? I can work with you to improve your relationships with others, but most importantly your relationship with yourself. By embracing a spirit of honesty and collaboration, we can work together in a calm environment where you have the time and space to examine your wants and needs, without judgement.
I will work with you to identify how any past events may be impacting you now. I will listen to your experiences and together we will try to make sense of the way in which they continue to feature in your life. I am a warm and relaxed person and I try to translate this to my therapy space.
I offer a free 20 minute initial consultation by telephone so that you can ask any questions you may have about therapy and find a convenient time to meet. I work online or by telephone, to make it as convenient for you as possible. To organise a consultation call, please email and I will get back to you within 24 hours. I look forward to hearing from you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Post-Graduate Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy from the University of Central Lancashire.
As well as my private practice, I have worked with Trust House Lancashire, a specialist charity that offers counselling to victims of sexual abuse. I also volunteer with The Wish Centre, Blackburn, offering counselling to those who have experienced domestic abuse.
I have a strong interest in trauma, and the impact of trauma on our physical and mental health.
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.
