MSc Integrative Psychotherapy, MBACP, UKCP

About me

Hello. I practise non-judgementally and specialise in working with individual clients experiencing, for instance: low self-esteem; shame; anger; existential despair; anxiety; isolation; dissociation; and issues of identity.

I believe we often experience life and its challenges in ways that feel unique to us. In our work together I will honour your experience, and, through paying close attention to your story, I will invite you to be curious about the themes and patterns which emerge. By sharing your story in this way, I aim to support you to discover new meanings, new strategies for coping, and new ways to take authorship of the next chapters of your life.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy from the Metanoia Institute
  • Clinical Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy,
  • Diploma in Integrative Psychodynamic Counselling from the Metanoia Institute.
  • I am a registered member of the BACP and of UKCP.

Before becoming a counsellor and psychotherapist I was first a tradesperson, then an educationalist, and finally an executive coach. Over the years I have gained significant professional insight into the public, private, and charity sectors. 

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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
