About me

Hello, I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor/psychotherapist. I am an experienced counsellor offering professional care and support to both individuals and couples. I am trained as an integrative counsellor, which means I work with a range of counselling skills from Person Centred, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. (C.B.T.) tailored to meet your individual needs. I work with a holistic approach, to help balance mind and body.

I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), I am also a member of United kingdom Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (UKRCP). I am fully insured and I have regular ongoing monthly supervision.

I offer one to one counselling, on a short term (Brief Therapy) or on a long term basis. My aim is to provide a comfortable and safe environment where clients can feel secure when opening up about their feelings, helping them realise they are not alone. I help clients think differently about their problems in a new and more empowering way. Counselling Is about helping people gain insight and understanding into their problems and supporting people to develop more emotional resilience.

I am an experienced Integrative counsellor, skills gained by working in many areas, such as: NHS work, private practice, Employee Assisted Programmes (E.A.P) and volunteer counsellor with local Charities. Over the years In have worked with many psychological issues, supporting people with a diverse range of problems, from depression, anxiety, Generalized Anxiety Disorder to self-harm, anger management, addictions, sexual, physical, mental abuse, bereavement, O.C.D., relationship issues, to name a few.

BACP

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.
