I draw upon differing ways of working to explore and understand your feelings and experience, through counselling and psychotherapy. My aim is to understand your inner process, your aims and desired outcomes, and to work together towards helping you design the future you would like, without fear or sadness, anxiety or stress.
I am a member of The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy, and also a graduate member of The British Psychological Association.
In the current climate I am working with clients via Zoom, or by telephone.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a First-Class Honours Degree in Psychology with Counselling, a level 4 diploma in therapeutic counselling, a Foundation Certificate in Psychodynamic Counselling and diplomas in various other useful areas such as Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Mindfulness, traditional and Cognitive Hypnotherapy.
In addition to carrying out assessments at a local hospice, I am a member of the counselling team. I also work with children and young people at a Hertfordshire school counselling service, many of who are awaiting appointments for Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).
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.
