About me

As a Registered BACP integrative counsellor I don’t believe in ‘One size fits all’. Rather than struggle through difficult times on your own, don’t hesitate to call me. I provide the time, place, space, and pace for you to feel safe in a therapeutic environment. I will attempt to build our relationship on respect, openness, and trust, with a robust adherence to confidentiality.

Our first session is an attempt to build this therapeutic alliance as well as to discuss whether counselling will be right for you.

A Client Counselling experience: How counselling helped me?

"Counselling has enabled me to look at life differently and slowly develop my understanding about issues in my life relating to studies, work, home and family. It has allowed me to have space to explore my thoughts and feelings in area I have not been able to talk about before or may not have considered before. I am now starting to feel good about myself, more confident and have more belief in who I am as a person. I am able to use the sessions to work on developing certain areas in my life and take action rather than just worry. So far it has been a challenging yet eye-opening experience"

My Approaches

We are living in a time of uncertainty and people are increasingly affected by loneliness, isolation, neglect and rejection, conditions that can lead to mental health issues. I am open to viewing everyone free of judgment and will take on board the perception they bring to the therapy. I offer Person Centred Therapy which provides an atmosphere of acceptance and respect so that you can have a deep understanding of your self and a good climate in which to achieve personal growth.

However, if during this therapeutic process you feel stuck, other interventions can be integrated such as CBT, psych-education and motivational interviewing. Whether it's through one or a combination of these processes, a way will be provided for you to see the light at the end of your journey. I strongly believe that everyone copes on a different level and as such I draw from a variety of skills, knowledge and experience to best suit your specific needs and provide the appropriate environment for building the therapeutic alliance by which you will progress towards recovery.

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.
