Animal assisted therapy is slowly being integrated into the mental health services within the UK. Now, I am offering a unique service of counselling children and young people with the assistance of animal assisted therapy. There is also the option of individual counselling without the animals. Working therapeutically with animals has proven to have many effective results such as a decrease in stress and anxiety, helping with anger management, improvements in physiological responses, among many others. I would be delighted to give more information should you be interested in this service.
I am an integrative counsellor, meaning that I use a variety of modalities that are tailored to your needs. One of these include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). This works with your emotions, behaviours and reactions and determining how we can get the best outcome of any situation that you are in, whether it is a situation that triggers anxiety, stress, depression or any other mental difficulties.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have graduated with a Master's from the University of Northampton in Counselling Children and Young People as well as spent a year in New York at a residential treatment facility pursuing an internship in Animal Assisted Therapy.
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).
