My work with clients
I believe the work I do with clients is an "equal" relationship. I assist them to get to the place they want to go or find the right path for them.
I work with three main groups of clients, those who have issues with anxiety, autism need couples therapy.
When working with anxiety, I determine what sort of anxiety a person has, we then work together to determine what is causing it and then we calm the anxiety down, making life easier for the client.
I also work with clients who are on the Autistic Spectrum, they may or may not have a diagnosis. I come to do this work through a dual lens of personal and professional views; my husband got a diagnosis of ASD in 2013, there was no help available for us as a couple or for him as an individual, it inspired me to do a research Masters Degree on how the therapist works with clients they perceive/are to be on the autistic spectrum. I now work with couples to help them build bridges in there relationship and understand each other more or with individuals who are facing life struggles as a result of ASD.
Finally, I work with couples who have lost their way in their relationship for whatever reason. Couple therapy problem solving and/or determining what both parities want or do not want. It is rarely a long term form of therapy, most of my couples have reached their destination in 3 or 4 sessions. However, everyone is different.

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.
