I believe for counselling to work well you need to find a therapist you can connect with on a human to human level, this is referred to as a therapeutic relationship and is built on a strong foundation of trust and rapport between the client and counsellor. Therapy works best when it is a collaborative process.
As a counsellor, I believe that with the right support and empathy we can all make beneficial changes if they are needed. My sessions are client led where I will try to help you find your own solutions.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified integrative counsellor/psychotherapist which means I will look at a variety of models and ways in which I can help and support you best.
I offer a professional, ethical non-judgmental, safe and confidential space to enable you to explore and gain an understanding of the situations that may be affecting or surrounding you.
In my own personal counselling career experience I have worked with an array of issues and ages working with colleges and local communities suffering with trauma, personality disorder, abuse, anxiety and depression etc specifically within loss, bereavement and complex grief through my work at a Hospice.
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.
