About me

Hello, At times life can be hard, we struggle; be that with feelings, behaviours, relationships or even knowing our place in the world. Beginning to untangle things and work out what the next step is may feel daunting or impossible. It doesn’t have to be this way. My aim is to help you pause and reconnect with your inner strength and values, and through this find better ways of being.

I provide a safe yet challenging environment where you will be able to discuss your concerns, see yourself more clearly and identify how to move towards what it is you seek. No matter where you’re at, what you’re facing or what you’ve experienced, I believe that healthier, stronger and better is always available to you.

Sessions will be structured around:

• gaining clarity around the issues that have led you to seek therapy
• understanding self-limiting behaviours and patterns
• identifying values and sources of meaning
• bringing this together to come up with a coherent and purposeful way forward

My fees are £40 per hour and £20 for cancellations.

I offer a free initial telephone consultation to discuss any questions you may have and to help ensure appropriate ‘fit’ between what you’re looking for and how I work.

If you would like to make an appointment or have any questions please get in touch. I aim to respond within 1 working day, sometimes this may not be possible but I will always get back to you.

Training, qualifications & experience

Trained in Person Centred and Experiential Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Registered BACP Member.

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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.

Areas of counselling I deal with

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Although I have listed the 'areas I deal with' above this does not mean they are the only areas I deal with. Far from it, I work with anyone who feels they will derive benefit from therapy.

Human experience is too complicated to be broken down into boxes or categories and when dealing with difficulty or distress we will all respond uniquely, perhaps manifesting different behaviours at different times.

The goal of therapy is therefore not to label these behaviours but rather to understand them holistically; what might they mean in the context of someone's life experience and perhaps even the person they are striving to be.

This is not to say we just accept anything troubling or difficult, but in taking a different stance it is possible to create a healthier relationship with psychological distress and even identify a more meaningful existence.
