We all have times when life seems challenging or our past catches up with us. This can be an overwhelming and isolating experience and I believe that to navigate through these periods, we need to find a space for ourselves and a supportive, open and constructive setting.
I offer a safe, friendly, professional environment that challenges and supports you as we work together to process your thoughts, feelings and fears. I strive to help you achieve a sense of relief and well-being, as well as presenting you with the opportunity to work towards change and understanding.
Training, qualifications & experience
My work is based on a psychodynamic approach to therapy although I may draw on other modalities if useful. This approach aims to find you a new perspective, by working with both past and present experiences and behaviours we will understand the influence these have played in your life and in shaping your beliefs.
I have worked in community counselling and end of life care services, giving me a wide experience of supporting clients dealing with a variety of difficulties, concerns and life events.
Please get in touch to arrange an initial appointment where we can discuss your specific hopes and needs from the counselling process and answer any questions you may have.
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.
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.
