About me

As an integrative counsellor I draw upon a variety of therapeutic modalities to offer a bespoke service based upon the needs of the client. We are all different but there are similarities specifically in the way the body and mind react to situations we experience

My person-centred approach to counselling reinforces the concept that each person knows themselves better than any one else and they function best if they are in control of their own choices and decisions and each one has the ability to reach their own true  potential. By offering a caring, non-judgemental, confidential environment where concerns, feelings and emotions can be explored, greater understanding and awareness of ones self can be gained and changes can be made

We are living in a very stressful environment and it can be therapeutic to understand what happens to our minds and bodies when under stress and recent neuroscience research is identifying this and what we can do to help to manage this stress and other conditions that may arise.

I work with a range of conditions and nothing is too big or too small to consider.

I am  a member of the BACP and work within their ethical framework.

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.
