About me

Counselling is one of those things that until you experience it, you don't really understand how it can help you to find what your looking for, and how life changing it can be.

My idea of a good counsellor is someone who can build a safe, trusting and non-judgmental alliance with the client, I feel this should happen within the first and second session, allowing for space to explore what it is that has bravely brought them to counselling in the first place.

My belief is that communication is power, being our authentic selves, and being comfortable with that process, to do this  we must first be clear in ourselves, able to come from clarity of mind without judgment and have the tools to find and connect with that authentic self.

I come from a school of Person Centered Therapy, this counselling approach allows the client to take an active role in the process as the therapist works in a non directive and supportive way.

For many years I worked in a Problem gambling program in Perth Western Australia, I found working in a Psycho-educational/Solution Focused way was very progressive and I had good results by adding therapies such as Mindfulness and Narrative therapy which can help to separate people from their problems, seeing them as, functioning individuals who at times in their lives can engage in behaviour and thought patterns that can be self-damaging or damaging to others.

This work spreads into any addictions and impulsive behaviour clients and due to my training which was a three year Bachelor of Counselling; an integrated and organised program which focused on the development of the human person through the lifespan, with a weaving of developmental, psycho social, personal and spiritual aspect, I have had good results to break out of cycles and move into permanent change.

I have worked with many clients in different situations such as prisons, schools and a Casino.

I work with all different issues such as grief and loss, abuse, addictions, impulse behaviours such as hoarding and eating problems and general issues.

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.
