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.

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.

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).
