I use an integrative style of psychotherapy, i.e. one that allows me to integrate various methods into a single system. This means I can draw on several therapeutic models, plus bring in coaching and related skills.
I work collaboratively, i.e. I am working alongside you, not doing therapy to you. We work together and adjust the process as we go along. This means I can be responsive to what you need on any given day and change how I work as your awareness develops.
I combine a range of skills, going beyond counselling theory into coaching and a spiritual/holistic/healing approach.
We are told that counselling is about the past while coaching is about the future. However, we all have a past and a future, and here we are in the present trying to make sense of them. To me, it makes no sense to pretend they are separate. We cannot make progress if we are bogged down by the past, and we need a vision of how we want our future to be. There is an area where counselling and coaching meet up, in which it is possible to refine your goals, get free of the baggage that has been weighing you down and create a path forward. This is powerful and effective.
My personal approach to life and work is spiritual. Yours, as a client, does not have to be. But it helps if you know where I’m coming from. I accept all spiritual paths that are based on kindness and respect for life and living things.
I interpret the world in terms of energy. This helps me to read individuals and situations accurately, and to understand the feelings of others.
My preferred models of counselling and psychotherapy are:
Person-Centred - Based on the principle that each person possesses the ability to grow, develop and fulfil their potential. The therapist’s role is to bring out what is already there within them.
Cognitive-Behavioural - Thoughts, Feelings and Behaviours work in a cycle. By finding a way to break the cycle, we can prevent negative thoughts, feelings and behaviours from feeding each other and continuing.
Psychodynamic - Derived from the work of Freud. Some very useful insights are provided by Attachment Theory, Object Relations and other aspects of this model.
Transactional Analysis - A way of viewing interactions so we can modify our own role in relation to others.
Solution-Focused - A direct way to get to the core of an unwanted behaviour or situation, and move towards a more desirable outcome.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been studying and practising counselling since 2017, becoming a fully qualified psychotherapist in 2021.
Since becoming a Life Coach in 2015, I realised that I needed greater skills to assist people with very difficult issues. I began reading about psychology and neuro-science, then undertook further studies so that I could extend my knowledge and address the full range of problems that clients experience.
I am also a Reiki Master-Teacher. I have been working as a holistic practitioner since 2012, using various forms of energy work. I realised that the talk part of the session was also very beneficial to clients, so I decided to develop this and provide life coaching too.
Previously, I worked in the music industry, the fitness industry, and housing/homelessness. The common factor was mental health and wellbeing (or the lack of these), so I was drawn to 1:1 therapeutic work as a more direct way to assist people.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
