Hello I'm Mia,
I am a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor combining Person Centred Therapy, CBT and Psychodynamic Therapy. Depending on your needs I will be there to offer support and tailor the therapy to you. You are at the centre of the therapy, this is your journey and therefore we work together on an approach that feels right for you.
My experience has largely been in the charitable sector working with Adults and Children with a range of presenting issues such as, Depression, Anxiety, Bereavement, Self-harm, Suicidal Thoughts, Confidence, Life Changes, Stress, Family Issues, Abuse and Anger.
My work with adults has included;
My work with Young People;
I have also worked as a school counsellor working with 11-18 year olds, during which time I recognised just how important early intervention and fostering a healthy approach to mental health with our young people is.
Sometimes in life we reach points when we say to ourselves "I don't want to feel this way anymore", sometimes we instinctively know that we want a change in how we are feeling, or just want to understand ourselves better but just don't know where or how to start. If you have reached this point then I can provide that space for you to make sense of your feelings and issues to start living the life that you want.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
