About me

Hello, My name is Natalie, and I'm an Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor with a passion for helping people to heal and grow. My ability to connect with clients comes from a desire to understand them from their unique perspective; with empathy, compassion and without judgement. I understand that no two people are the same even though they may have had similar life experiences or upbringings. I put myself in their world to see through their eyes and the healing comes from the human to human connection. My sole goal as a therapist is to help transform the lives of others. I look forward to helping you transform yours.

My focus is to help you heal, energise, and become aware of your inner strengths. This is achieved by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, and customising integrative therapeutic methods to your unique individual needs. I strive to support individuals to overcome life's challenges, examine their lived experiences or explore behaviour change through conversation and talking therapy. 

I offer an initial consultation without charge, this gives us the opportunity to have a conversation about what brings you to therapy and your expectations and goals.  This way we can both meet each other and decide if we would be suitable to work together.  At this consultation we will also discuss a regular time and day for us to hold sessions. If you would like to arrange a consultation, please feel free to send an email or phone to request a meeting.

Training, qualifications & experience

13 years experience working in the healthcare sector both public and private. I've worked with people across all age groups, special needs, stroke and neurological disorders/illnesses, Alzheimer's and supporting family members whom support these people. I have worked in multiple ability settings, in the community, nursing homes and hospitals. I lived in Sri Lanka working with underprivileged children in community settings as well as institutionalised women and men. During my counselling training, I supported survivors of sexual violence and childhood trauma and abuse. I have a BSc in Counselling and Psychology and a PG Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counselling. I am a graduate member of the British Psychological Society and a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I abide by the BACP ethical framework in my practice and I have regular supervision to support my client work. 

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.

Accredited register membership
