About me

My name is Tilly. It is my passion and life work so far in helping others to achieve mental wellness, and further to alleviate self-suffering. I see counselling as a guide. So being on a journey together, where my clients bring their difficulties and I bring my professional knowledge/skills, unconditional positive regard and empathy. I believe people  have the capability to bring their inner resources and expertise regarding themselves. Yet through building confidential trust in a therapeutic relationship/setting and trust in the counselling process, together we can achieve self-growth. I will bring the nourishing ingredients of training, experience, compassion, nurturing, empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard, you will bring your life

Having someone to listen to you and understand you on an emotional level with intense meaning, can be a very enlightening experience,

How I Work

My approach is humanistic, relational and integrative. I use my knowledge and training to assist in my approach to meet my client's individual needs

Therapy can guide client's, raise awareness and promote healthy well being. I offer a safe, empathetic  and non-judgmental environment, to assist in nourishing my client's journey into self-growth. We cannot unchanged the past but together we can work on the 'here and now'.

Member organisations

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.
