Holistic Psychotherapist -BACP Reg

About me

Specialising in Addiction, Trauma, Anxiety, Relationships, attachment and intimacy. I bring together a powerful Integrated EMDR approach using Hypno-therapeutic guided imagery to help uncover and explore repeated patterns, mental traffic and charged memories which clears your path to move forward in life and make change more manageable. Alternatively, for those seeking a more spiritual dimension, Soul Contract Reading and Divine Healing are also a very powerful perspective to consider and explore.

I offer a safe and confidential space in a non-judgmental environment. I offer counselling on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period for singles, individuals in a relationship and couples.

Working collaboratively, counselling can offer an increase in the ability to be more present in the moment, resulting in more clarity and greater discernment. It also increases self-awareness, resulting in the ability to be more deliberate which can help develop skills and the ability to manage the mind and emotions. Overall, counselling supports you to become more fully self-expressed, resulting in more authentic and empowering relationships.

Having had a successful over 17 years of working with people and their relational problems across a wide range of difficulties, I feel confident in addressing any issues my clients bring.

My primary role is to help you improve your responses to life without violating your core values or deeply held principles.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
