About me

I am qualified Pluralistic Counsellor with 5 years of experience working within the substance misuse sector. The key to my work with clients is the belief that, through a psychotherapeutic relationship, we can gain insights into our patterns of behaviour. Working co-creatively, we can explore the possibility of change and begin to think of alternative positions that can move towards a more compassionate, and fulfilled version of ourselves. As I am currently in full training as a Transactional Analyst, I'm offering a reduced rate to clients seeking therapy.


Through my training at the University of South Wales in Pluralistic Therapy, I have been afforded the capability to work eclectically with clients. I'm a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) & UK Association for Transactional Analysis (UKATA), and my background allows me to draw from a different range of therapies to support clients needs and achieve goals.

My therapeutic practice is client-centred, offering a non-judgemental, caring, confidential, supportive way of working. I have completed the intensive Dialectical Behaviour Therapy group skills facilitator training, giving me insight and a robust skill set to work effectively with clients with personality disorders and other mental health complexities.

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.
