The challenging times we currently find ourselves in, bring many issues to the surface. The difficulties that arise for you may include struggles with identity, self-esteem, stress, anxiety, depression, grief and bereavement, or strained family or romantic relationships. You may experience feelings of isolation and difficulty in finding a sense of meaning and purpose, perhaps struggling to find a path through life or a a way of being that you feel is really you. Through exploration of the issues you face, we can use therapy to develop self-insight and transform life's difficulties into opportunities for growth and self-discovery.
I work in an integrative way, drawing upon a range of theories to create a therapy which meets you where you are. I offer a compassionate space in which we can work with thoughts, feelings, intuition, sensations, values, life-story, imagery, symbols, dreams, lived experiences, and how we experience ourselves in the relational context of being in the world.
I offer a warm, kind and gentle approach, with a focus upon providing a safe, non-judgemental setting, so that we may build a strong therapeutic relationship, within which to work.
Please get in touch to arrange an initial session, in which we can discuss your needs and expectations of therapy.
The next step would be to undertake a series of six weekly sessions, to further explore how therapy could be of help to you.
Beyond which, we can continue on a longer-term basis, with weekly sessions.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have undertaken a professional training in integrative transpersonal psychotherapy (PGDip).
I have also recently completed a research MA exploring the integrative transpersonal approach to psychotherapy.
My research focussed upon how values derived from outsider/sub-culture identities may help deal with life-threatening illness and challenges, in order to transform those experiences into meaningful opportunities for self-discovery and understanding how we are embedded within the greater context of existence.
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.
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.
