About me

I am an experienced therapist of 18 years and I work face to face and Online. I work with adults, children and young people. I have worked therapeutically for charities, trauma centres, schools, community centres, hospitals and in private practice. I offer various methods that I have trained in to meet the need of the individual. My aim when working with clients is how can I help facilitate a safe space where change, growth and healing can happen. I work in a holistic and integrative way, using different methods and my aim is that in this healing process the individual takes away techniques, tools and awareness of self that can aid them in their life. The ways I work can include looking at self defeating patterns, limiting behaviours, reviewing unhelpful thoughts that inhibit your growth, releasing emotional and mental blocks, supporting the nervous system to regulate, emotional release of Trauma, inner child work, somatic body work and many other ways of working....I am also trained in shamanism for those who wish to work in a transpersonal way and also in hypnotherapy so at times these methods may be offered if appropriate.
Some people prefer working in more cognitive way but some prefer a more creative way and this can be useful to access patterns that are more subconscious and out of the persons awareness. The creative piece of work can act as a holding safe space for unexpressed feelings and thoughts. I may use mediums such as sand tray work , clay, creative visualisation, art/crafts and music/sound healing. I also offer Supervision sessions to my fellow therapists.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
