MA Psychotherapist/Counsellor BA Psychology

About me

I am a psychologist, a counsellor and a psychotherapist working with adults, adolescents, and children. I use a range of therapeutic models including Integrative, Gestalt, Psychodynamic, Mindfulness, Narrative Therapy, Art Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

 I provide safe, confidential and professional psychological therapy which aims to help people to learn to listen and communicate better with their emotions, reflect on their experiences, understand patterns of thoughts and behaviors which may be problematic, and support themselves by investing on the voyage towards self-awareness and self-care.

My empathetic approach doesn’t involve judgments of any kind. My aim is to support individuals to explore and feel their emotions, even if that sometimes can be a bit painful, in order for them to be free from their problems, life events, negative thoughts, emotions, unresolved issues and stressful situations.

​ I prioritise respecting client’s autonomy in the choice of treatment, as every client’s need would be much different and complex than anyone else. That’s why a variety of different models of counselling, will be offered to them, in order to work with the ones that they feel right and match the needs of the individual.

Member organisations

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.

Further information

My practice is currently online.  Online therapy gives you the flexibility of being able to receive expert mental health treatment, without having to travel. All you need is an internet connection and a device, tablet, mobile phone or computer. Being able to undergo therapeutic treatment in your home is helpful if your mental health condition, mobility, or other issues make it difficult for you to leave home regularly. You may just be short of time – we appreciate that fitting therapy into your existing schedule can stretch your commitments and add potential stress to your week.
