About me

Psychotherapy

Reaching out is the hardest thing to do, now you have done this you can start your journey to make positive changes in your life. I am an integrative psychotherapist, which means I use various modalities in my work with clients.  My initial training was in psychodynamic with CBT, and I specialise in neurodiversity.  Many clients are either seeking a diagnosis or have been diagnosed with ADHD, Autism or PDA.  I work with adults and children, aged 10 and over.  I work via Zoom and face to face. 

Supervision
I also offer specialist supervision for psychotherapists and counsellors working with neurodivergent clients.  Therapy for neurodivergent clients needs to be delivered by specialists, it is essential that supervision is received from a qualified practitioner experienced within this field. Over the years, I have found neurodivergent clients have expressed to me the difficulties they have had in accessing support and making progress, due to previous therapists not understanding their neurodiversity.

This can be due to therapists’ making incorrect assumptions of behaviours/thinking styles and confusion because the clients may not be responding well to a neurotypical style of therapeutic interventions.

If therapists and supervisors are not skilled in recognising when neurodiverse traits are present, it is likely that their treatment plans would be ineffective. It is important that their therapist can identify the key issues which are at the root of their difficulties. Specialist supervision provides supervisees with the confidence to work flexibly and provide effective support to their clients.

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.
