I am a qualified psychotherapist and an experienced mental health practitioner, having previously worked for many years as a mental health nurse in the NHS.
As a psychotherapist in private practice I have been able to help people explore, manage and overcome a wide range of personal and emotional difficulties, including anxiety, depression, trauma, low self esteem, relationship problems and work stress.
We will work together to identify, understand and change the thought and behaviour patterns that are keeping you from being the happiest and healthiest that you can be. I will work hard to help you to understand, manage and overcome the problem that has brought you to therapy, and often other problems in your life too. You will develop new skills which will help you to meet future challenges in your life with more confidence and strength.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained with the Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling (BCPC). I have an MA and Diploma in Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy. I am registered with UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).
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.
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.
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.
