Hi, my name is Mim (she/her). I am a Person-Centred Psychotherapist and Counsellor with a creative, deeply empathetic and integrative approach to helping people develop self-awareness and make real, lasting personal and interpersonal change. My practice is about creating a safe space with individuals to explore the impact of stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, parenthood, baby loss and bereavement, post-abortion concerns, violence, separation, inequality, adverse childhood experience, emotional, sexual, and physical abuse on their lives and to find ways not just to survive, but thrive.
Using Integrative, Person-Centred, Trauma-Informed approaches, I support my clients to make empowered choices for themselves. I incorporate therapeutic models such as Compassion Focused, Humanistic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Attachment Theory – tailoring the way I work to match the needs of the human in front of me.
I ensure the full recognition of intersectionality and life experience and therefore work within an anti-discriminatory and anti-oppression framework. I'm passionate about working effectively in cross-cultural situations and have an aliveness to the importance of seeing the world out of the client’s window, not just my own. My practice is LGBTQ+ affirmative.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified, BACP registered, Psychotherapist and Counsellor, offering one-to-one therapy for adults.
I'm currently studying for my Master's Degree, and have obtained my Post-Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of East London, the longest running BACP accredited programme in the UK.
I have worked within the women’s sector for over 5 years, and outside of my private practice, I continue to provide counselling to a number of local women’s charities that support individuals who have experienced multiple disadvantages. My experience includes short, mid-term and long-term counselling and psychotherapy for women with experiences of unplanned pregnancy, pregnancy complications, following pregnancy loss and post-abortion concerns; supporting individuals on probation who are seeking mental health support; journeying with adults experiencing family-based conflicts, domestic abuse and family related issues; helping those who have experienced sexual exploitation.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
