Asking for help can be difficult for many reasons. You may even be asking yourself "What is it that I need help with? Some examples could be;
- Loss of direction and purpose in life.
- A better understanding of how we feel, think and behave in relation to ourselves and others.
- Feeling stuck.
- Struggling with overwhelming mental health issues and disorders.
- Finding coping mechanisms to roll with the changes life throws at us.
- Grief and loss of identity and roles that bereavement can impact upon..
You may be wondering what can I provider to you that is different to what others on this website are offering? We all work differently because we are all unique beings with our own thoughts, feelings and behaviours. I adapt to whatever your present needs are in the therapy room and this can vary each session.
I work integratively, meaning that I'm using 3 different theoretical frameworks to help you acheive your goals and aims that we have set together in the first session. I wont bombard you with therapy terminologies or jargon and will always strive to explain my techniques and thought processes in a way that helps you to understand and then put into action. The work between us can then be extended to the outside world.
I use a therapeutic model that focuses on the relationship between us. This can be useful in helping you to put changes into place that help enhance your interactions with others, such as;
- Setting boundaries.
- Having an improved sense of self.
- Changing how we interact with others and having the confidence to tell others how we want to be treated.
- Making difficults decisions that will benefit ourselves in the long run.
- Getting your own wants and needs met, not only from others but more importantly, from yourself.
- Implementing self care. This can help you to avoid burn-out.

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).
