About me

I am an experienced Integrative therapist and Counselling Supervisor working with individuals and groups in private practice and within agencies.

I am a member of the BACP accredited register.

I integrate a number of models depending on the needs of each individual client. My core humanistic belief is that in a trusting relationship, therapy is a powerful tool to assist people to tap into and build their own strengths and resiliency.

I work either short or longer term, depending on the issue and the time someone feels they want to engage with the therapeutic process.

The key to the most beneficial therapy is the relationship with the therapist and you need to feel comfortable and able to talk in a safe, non-judgemental environment, where you can take an active and collaborative role in your own treatment.

I have worked for a number of agencies providing Counselling and Supervision and in long term private practice since 2006.

Member organisations

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.
