Hello, I am a qualified therapist and supervisor with over 11 years experience working with adults and children within the NHS. I specialise in working with children and adolescents who have emotional, behavioural and social difficulties. I am a therapist who is committed to supporting your emotional wellbeing working in an integrative way and tailoring our sessions to support your needs. I provide a safe supportive and confidential environment for you to explore your emotional needs and well being
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor accredited by the National Counselling Society and am a registered therapist member of the BACP. I qualified as a counsellor in 2008 and have been working professionally since 2010 for the NHS as a school counsellor. I have experience of working with individuals, children and young people, families and couples. During my 11year career I have completed CPD in varying topics and am currently finishing my final year of a psychology degree with The Open University.
I believe in providing a safe space and a positive working relationship for you then to feel secure enough to explore any issues, worries or concerns you need to talk about. I lean towards a humanistic approach and am person centred in my beliefs but as an integrative therapist am able to support you and tailor our work to suit your personality and needs. I can help you explore relationships, set goals, improve self esteem and help you grow in confidence.
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.
