About me

I offer long and short term work through the vision of a person centered approach with a flair of psycho dynamic and existential thinking I have a natural ability in building relationships with people, this can offer a springboard for therapeutic process.

I offer a flexible, affordable and convenient service to people using telephone or video calls. This has proved a particularly useful service to people whom feel they cant leave their own homes or do not have the confidence to travel around the city.

I am a Qualified British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy registered counsellor, with a wide field of study attributed to my experience. I have worked with a wide range of life challenges including
AnxietyDepression
Trauma including PTSD
Relationships
Loss and Grief
Burn out
Stress
Narcissism
Self Harm
Eating disorders including over eating
Addiction

ADHD

I believe we are our own masters to self actualisation but sometimes because of life challenges we lose our way or need help finding what our way is. In therapy we will work towards clearing the pathway to an enriching and happy life.

I can use creative means to therapy and often have an existential thought process to compliment the person centered approach, however the process will be guided by your way of being. You will be the navigator to your own therapy whilst I will gently offer my insight about what I have observed along the way.

My diverse life experience and field of study has helped me generate a large metaphorical tool box that I can use to offer empowerment to you along your journey of self exploration.

BACP

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.
