Integrative Counsellor MBACP MSc BSc

About me

I am a calm and empathic counsellor, available for clients who want to work through issues that are causing them concern or difficulties in their day to day lives.

About You
Do you feel you need some support to work through issues or challenges in your life? Maybe you are feeling anxious or experiencing low mood? Have life events left you overwhelmed or uncertain about what is next?
Maybe there is something that you need to talk about, but don’t want to talk to friends or family about it right now. Counselling may offer the opportunity to work through these emotions and more, finding a way forward for you. I offer a safe space to do this, through short term and long term counselling, depending on your needs.

How do I work?

My integrative counselling approach and techniques will be led by your needs and the topics you wish to work through. This may involve elements of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), Gestalt and and other humanistic and psychodynamic approaches.  We may also use more creative methods, but the choice will always be yours. Counselling sessions with me will always involve a safe, confidential, empathic and non-judgemental environment, from the underpinning basis of a client-centred ethos.

Counselling experience
My counselling experience is varied, having supported adults, children and young people in a variety of settings. I have worked regularly with clients experiencing (amongst other things)

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • bereavement, grief & loss, abandonment issues
  • domestic abuse
  • family/relationship difficulties
  • identity and self esteem issues

I have also worked with dreams, this being a personal area of study and research.

I have worked within Cruse Bereavement services and have also supported young people in primary and secondary school, as well as FE college as a school/college based counsellor. I am an approved therapist with Anxiety UK. I also have experience working alongside the military and can offer support in this context.

My aim is always to provide you with a calm and safe space to share your thoughts and experiences, allowing you to find the insight that you need to make the changes you desire.

Member organisations

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.
