About me

I am a qualified counsellor working in the Mid-Ulster area, My goal as a therapist is to help clients embrace their authentic selves, foster meaningful relationships, and improve their quality of life. In my practice, I work to create a safe and accepting environment that values the unique personality, lifestyle, and goals of the individual. I offer individual therapy to address any type of mental health issue such as depression, interpersonal problems, trauma, anxiety, stress, suicidal ideation, self-harm, abuse, and self-esteem issues

Training, qualifications & experience

As a FdSc Integrative Therapist, trained in Humanistic, Cognitive Behavioural and Psychodynamic approaches to counselling. I qualified as an Integrative counsellor in 2019. I use a range of theories and techniques to meet the needs of clients, with a range of issues, across the lifespan (4+)

Member organisations

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.

Further information

My style is heavily influenced by a Humanistic core, focusing on the safety of a non-judgemental, empathic and congruent therapeutic relationship. A Cognitive-Behavioural awareness of how our thoughts & emotions are directly linked to behaviour & feelings, & a Psychodynamic focus on how the past unresolved, presents itself in the present.
