About me

Therapy is a space for you to process your emotions through telling your story and putting together the different pieces of your life. By giving voice to how you feel about significant times and how you react to and feel about those times allows the opportunity to find new meaning. In the therapeutic space we can reflect together on what is going on for you and explore how experiences may have shaped who you are, how you respond and what it means for how you experience what it is to be human. As we work together, we will explore those feelings and experiences, working towards what they might say about what you need.

I work in an integrative and psychodynamic way; I believe that past experiences affect behaviour, beliefs, actions and responses in the here and now. Giving space to both the conscious and unconscious processes can help us in the journey of discovering more of your story and what it means for you to develop a sense of who you are.

As we work together, we will explore your feelings and experiences, working towards what they might say about what you need, opening up the possibility to feel your way forward from a place that perhaps feels fragmented to one where things are more coherent, developing your voice, and needs can be fulfilled in new ways.

“Your story isn’t calm. The road has been chaotic at times, filled with detours and rain and loss so sudden, and soon. Sometimes the bliss was so elevated your heart could hardly hold it. Sometimes it was maddening to have, and then to lose. You learn soon enough that it hardly ever goes as planned – gentle, easy, and smooth. But that my friend, is what makes you fascinating. You have something to tell. Something you’ve walked through. Something wild. Something courageous. Something true. You’re made of stories within stories within even more stories. Those quiet depths of you.” Victoria Erickson.

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.
