I understand how overwhelming life can become at points in our life and how this can become incredibly consuming. There are some moments in life that are really difficult and in these moments talking to someone may feel needed or in fact just as difficult. I’m here to let you know that that’s okay! Acknowledging the difficulty and also talking about the problems you’re facing will come with time; I will endeavour to provide a safe, confidential and judgement free environment to allow this space for you to explore these moments and be there alongside you.
I’m a Person Centred counsellor working to the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)’s ethical and legal framework. My way of working is to be guided by you and the journey you take our therapeutic relationship along. My focus will be you and how I can best support you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I completed my Therapeutic Counselling Diploma at New College Swindon after 5 years of training. During the COVID-19 pandemic I undertook a Telephone and Online Counselling course to ensure safe, ethical and legal online work for my clients during such uncertain times.
I receive ongoing training and development to ensure my practice, knowledge and expertise are as up to date as possible. I’m also in the process of completing a Children and Younger People course to tap into a personal interest of mine.
During my work as a counsellor I have worked with a variety of different issues, people and ages. From this, I have found that regardless of who walks through my door, I’m incredibly thankful and touched to be a part of their therapeutic process.
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.
