I offer a warm, understanding space with empathy for clients to explore their feelings in safety and in confidence. I am here to listen, to provide you with a time just for you, where you can express, explore, and discover what may be affecting you.
I work from an integrative perspective, meaning that I am able to draw from different approaches, with a deep connection to a person-centred approach. I hold you, the client, at the heart of the work.
I feel that the therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client is essential for growth and change.
I am currently working online and via telephone only with new clients, due to the Pandemic. However, we can discuss the possibility of physical face to face work after our first few sessions.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am experienced in working with survivors of domestic abuse, those living with anxiety, depression, loss and low self-esteem. I have many years experience of working with older people, and feel that I can offer a safe space for many varied issues.
I am a fully qualified, Integrative Counsellor, and I am also a registered member of the BACP-British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Recently I have undertaken additional training in online and telephone counselling, and I am able to offer these useful and highly effective approaches. I ensure that I take part in regular Continuing Professional Development, which recently included bereavement.
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.
