Hi - I am a BACP registered psychotherapist, and I work primarily with Adult ADHD and Autism. I have received a diagnosis of severe ADHD and, more recently, of Autism myself; and so I work from an authentic, lived-experience point-of-view... utilising CBT and person centred therapy. I offer one-to-one services, either face-to-face or online. In addition, I facilitate sessions for businesses that wish to learn and understand more about ADHD and Autistic Spectrum Conditions, to better be able to support staff.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at levels 2 and 3 in Person Centred Counselling, followed by completing my Foundation Degree in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I additionally undertake CPD on a regular basis - to date, entailing training in Attachment, Autism, Trauma, Adverse Childhood Experiences, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Defence Mechanisms, Young People's Mental Health, Drug Awareness, Anger Management, Domestic Abuse, Personal Resilience, Identity, Bipolar Disorder and Change Management.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
£55.00 per session
Concessions offered for
I charge £55 per therapy hour, with a 20% discount for full-time students. This is payable in advance, and applies whether sessions are face-to-face or online.
I work in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework. I strive to develop a collaborative and empathic relationship with each client; encouraging change in the life areas the individual wishes to focus upon. At times, therapy can be challenging - in particular when trying to learn new behaviours and ways of thinking. I walk side by side with each client, aiming to be supportive, compassionate and encouraging as the journey unfolds.
