We all have times when life seems challenging or our past catches up with us. I believe that finding a space for ourselves and the support to be able to work through and process our thoughts and feelings can offer a huge sense of relief and well-being, as well as the opportunity to work towards change and understanding.
Through my work in a community counselling service and a hospice bereavement counselling team, I have experience of supporting clients dealing with a variety of difficulties, changes and life events.
Training, qualifications & experience
My background is in psychodynamic counselling which is based on the principle that our current thought, behaviour and coping patterns are born of past experiences – both positive and negative. This holistic approach to therapy can enable a deeper understanding and acceptance of both the root cause and immediate symptom, to offer the prospect of changing the way you might think, feel and behave in your relationships, environments and life events.
Although I am passionate about this way of working, I also consider it important to recognise the benefits of other therapeutic modalities and will draw on these when appropriate and helpful.
Please feel to contact me to arrange an initial appointment where we can discuss what you are seeking from the counselling process and any questions you may have.
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.
