About me

I am one half of the team at Different Therapy named because we are different – distinct, individual, diverse and that is to be celebrated, as are the differences in every client.
Difference is welcomed here.

Thank you for checking out my profile; I hope that you find it down to earth and easy to follow. 

I believe that counselling can be a life changing experience given the correct environment and therapeutic relationship; in other words, you and your counsellor need to gel! 

I started training to be a counsellor because personal therapy changed my life and the relationship I had with my counsellor throughout my therapy journey, I believe, was the key to that. I wanted to be able to pass that life changing experience onto other people. 

I have a particular interest in how childhood trauma affects us as adults, especially trauma and transitions during our teenage years. This interest was sparked by the personal work I have carried out to understand my own experiences as a teen and the volume of clients who were presenting with similar issues.  

I believe every client is deserving of a trusting, compassionate, non-judgemental experience in counselling and as a trained diversity and inclusion specialist, I feel that clients are guaranteed that their 'differences' will be welcomed with open arms. I use a blend of techniques to enable me to work collaboratively with each client to produce a seamless, individual weave of counselling suitable to their exacting needs. 

I am able to offer face to face, video and telephone counselling to suit your individual needs.

Member organisations

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.
