Dip (MBACP) Integrative Counsellor

About me

The process of healing following a loss, or a significant life change requires patience and time.  Each and everyone of us will be affected in our own special ways.  You may be feeling helpless, exhausted, stressed, burnout and hopeless don't give up help is within your reach, I am only a phone call away. 

I am a BACP member, an integrative therapist working both in private practice and in the voluntary sector supporting individuals in their wellbeing. I hold a level 4 CPCAB integrative Clinical Diploma and various certificates in counselling skills. I have experience in assisting clients with any issues associated with anxiety, stress, abuse, anger, trauma, bereavement, addictions, eating disorders, cultural and family problems, depression, relationships, work related problems and redundancy, insecurity and low self esteem, sex, sexuality, gender,  and amongst others.

My particular model of working is personal centred where my clients are placed at the centre of the service and treated as a person first.  The focus is on the person and what they can do, and not their condition.  I work with the following core belief; I am transparent with my clients, I am empathic towards them, I listen without judging them and they are valued as they are individually unique. 

Therapy provides an opportunity for us to reflect on how you are living your life, who you are, what you do and what you feel in the present and how this might be related to your past experiences. It also highlight a better understanding of yourself and how you are in relationships.

In therapy we will talk about your feelings and your thoughts process in your current circumstances aiming to identify and improve your ways of coping strategies. We will also discuss the various options that will enable you to find greater clarity in making your own choices.

I believe that the relationship between therapist and client is a key factor in achieving good therapeutic outcomes. I provide a safe, confidential space which allows us to explore collaboratively whatever issues might have contributed to you seeking therapy at this time.

Before our first session we will do an assessment to establish what you hope to gain from the sessions and whether and how we might work together.  You may wish to focus on a specific problem or feel generally dissatisfied with the way your life is going or you may simply wish to find out more about yourself . We will discuss and agree on the patterns that works for you and how long we will work for.  This will be open to review at any time.

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.

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.
