As a practising counsellor, my aim is to help you to find a better way to understand the problems, patterns and behaviours that have brought you to counselling and walk alongside you as you work towards living the life you want to live. I want to listen to your story- offering empathy and acceptance as we work together- and hope to build a secure therapeutic relationship with you where you feel safe enough to be open and authentic with me.
You are at the heart of this process and I aim to offer you a safe and confidential space: one where you feel comfortable to open up to me about what is going on for you. It is not my role to tell you what to do or offer advice, but to support you while you find your own answers.
What I can offer:
I specialise in working with adults as well as children and young people who are experiencing a range of issues such as anxiety, depression, loss and bereavement, stress, abuse, issues around sexuality, relationship problems, family issues, low self-esteem.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a BACP registered counsellor with a diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. I am trained in the person-centred model but am flexible in my approach to work conductively with each client and their individual needs. We are all, after all, unique, and my relationship with you needs to reflect that.
I have regular CPD (continued professional development) to maintain and enhance my skills and knowledge.
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.
