I am a Solution Focused therapist with 13 years experience and I am based in Royston. Clients come with a variety issues including anxiety, depression, family breakdown, bereavement and work-related problems.
I work with my clients to help them to address issues and set goals to enable them to move on with their lives in a positive way.
Training, qualifications & experience
I qualified first as a social worker and did an initial course in counselling and therapy. I saw the difference counselling made to the individuals and families I worked with. 12 years ago I studied for a Masters in Solution Focused therapy at Brimingham university.
I work with HCC in schools with young people on a regular basis and also have a private practice.
I work as a supervisor for the Connexions Service and also offer training in SF skills.
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.
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.
