There are times when life can be challenging and you may be experiencing difficulties with relationships, anxiety, and feelings of hopelessness. I offer a confidential space for you to explore your problems and I can work with you to enable you to manage the difficulties you are facing.
As a UKCP Registered Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor I have a range of knowledge and skills that can be utilised to provide the counselling that you require. Being a member of the Intersubjective College I work in a relational way that addresses present circumstances, considers historical influences on your thinking and behaviour, and explores new ways of being that lead to a healthier, more fulfilling life.
I can offer face to face, telephone, or zoom/skype sessions.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have ten years experience working as a UKCP registered Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor with a wide range of clients and issues, including addiction, anxiety, depression, bereavement, self harm, relationship issues and trauma.
I have a BA in Integrative Counselling from the University of Middlesex, an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling and a Certifcate in Clinical Supervision.
I also have 7 years experience working as a Lecturer in Counselling, and currently teach on the Counselling BA programme at the University of Suffolk.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
