I believe that everyone deserves to be supported during times of suffering or difficulty. Life can be tough sometimes and none of us is exempt from experiencing bumps in the road.
Are you struggling with anxiety, depression, feelings of sadness or loss?. Or perhaps you have been through a traumatic and upsetting experience or suffered a bereavement or other loss. I can help with these issues and many more, please know that there is a way forward and we can work together on helping you feel better and find a way to start enjoying life again.
I have a person-centred philosophy which means that I accept you just as you are, I will not judge you regardless of what you tell me and I will empathise and seek to understand not only your circumstances but your personal viewpoint based on your unique life experiences.
I believe that counselling can support you when you need it but it can also equip you for the future. It is my hope that clients complete their counselling feeling more resilient and confident in their ability to cope in challenging times.
I complement my approach with CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) techniques, Transactional Analysis, Solution-Focused approach and coaching in order to best support my clients. I adapt my approach to suit you as a person, I don't expect you to fit into my idea of what would help you. Your sessions are your time, for you!.
Get in touch as we can discuss how I can help you. I am happy to be contacted with any questions you may have.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a first-class degree in Counselling Studies and a Masters Degree with Distinction in Clinical Psychology. I studied at Hull University.
I am a registered member of the BACP register number; 376918
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
