About me

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.

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.

Further information

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.
