About me

I am an integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor and offer the time and space for those experiencing emotional distress to explore their current difficulties, or longer term issues, in a safe, contained environment and in complete confidence. 

I draw on a number of humanistic models (TA, Gestalt, Attachment Theory, CBT) and believe that the therapeutic relationship is at the heart of the work.  By experiencing an empathic, non-judgmental and mutually respectful relationship clients can feel seen and heard in a way that can often be missing in their other relationships. As they begin to share their internal process, and hear it reflected back, they can get to know and understand themselves better and this enables them to make any changes they then identify. Having this one to one connection with another is becoming increasingly difficult in the modern way of life but truly has the potential to be a transforming experience, allowing clients to discover, or reclaim, their autonomy and make choices that will lead to greater personal fulfillment.

I use creative methods when people find it hard to put their thoughts or feelings into words but am always guided by the client about how they want to work.

Accredited member UKCP
Accredited member BACP - MBACP (Accred)
Member of Northern Guild for Psychotherapy and Counselling (NGP)

I work within the codes of ethics of both governing bodies and my training organisation, have a CRB check and professional insurance.

I am committed to, and welcome, my Continuing Professional Development and opportunities to pursue my areas of particular interest within the profession.

I work with clients with a range of presenting issues at an NHS GP Group Practice, which is where I now also have my private practice.

I am committed to the well-being of my clients.

My decision to train was a career change that followed a major re-evaluation of my own life. I wanted to pursue my deep interest in talking therapy and my utter conviction in the benefits of a one to one relationship that can provide a corrective emotional experience.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Further information

As a person I am calm, sensitive and reflective.

This can lead to changes that may be identified as helpful or, simply, to a greater understanding and acceptance of self.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
