I am a professionally qualified Counsellor working with individuals face-to-face in the Southampton area.
I am committed to providing therapy within a confidential and safe space in which you can allow yourself to talk about your concerns, issues and difficulties, which perhaps you feel unable to share with others.
These issues may include anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, relationships, bereavement, abuse, or life changing decisions.
I work using an integrative counselling approach, enabling me to pull on elements from a variety of counselling modalities, best suited to your needs and character.
If you are seeking counselling for the first time, I hope to encourage you to ‘give it a try’. If you have previous experience of counselling, positive or negative, no two experiences can be the same. I hope to encourage you to ‘give it another go’.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a First Class BA (Honours) degree in Integrative-Relational Counselling from Middlesex University.
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.
