Do you struggle with anxiety, trauma, or low self esteem? Has life just become too much and you need a safe space judgement free to work through it all? I can provide that space, a space for you to feel heard and help you unpick all of your thoughts, feelings and emotions and to understand yourself a bit better, helping you work towards inner peace. Counselling can seem daunting but making contact is the first step to start the process towards healing and self growth.
Our first appointment will give you the chance to meet me and help me to understand what you would like to get out of therapy and whether my approach is right for you. After that appointments will be weekly at the same time and the length of therapy can be open ended depending on what you would like to talk about and your personal circumstances.
You can bring what ever you would like to the sessions, whether you would like to concentrate on a specific issue or look to explore things on a deeper level. I will provide you with the experience of being heard and we will move at a pace comfortable to you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am trained and qualified in psychodynamic counselling, often we have relationship templates or have built defences that we needed in our early or formative years but which may not help us going forwards & maybe effecting current relationships in a negative way. I believe the therapeutic relationship is a safe relationship to explore all of these feelings gain insight and work through trauma.
I am a BACP Registered Counsellor which means my practice has been deemed to meet the standard required for a competent, ethical and independent counsellor.
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.
