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

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
