About me

Hello my name is Shauna,

Firstly thank you for clicking on my profile, As a seasoned and accredited therapist, I specialise in providing integrative therapy to a diverse range of clients in a welcoming and supportive setting. With a strong foundation in psychodynamic principles and family dynamics, my approach delves deep into the past to illuminate patterns affecting present behaviours and relationships.

using attachment theory and transactional analysis, empowering clients to foster self-awareness and engage in healthier patterns of relating. Whether it's unravelling attachment styles or exploring repeated patterns, I guide clients towards deeper insights and meaningful change.

Anxiety is a prevalent challenge many of my clients face, and I am deeply committed to helping them not only manage but also understand and grow from their experiences. Through personalised strategies and a compassionate approach, I support clients in accepting their anxiety and harnessing its messages for personal growth.

With extensive experience in working with individuals who have experienced sexual trauma, I guide clients through the process of healing and reclaiming agency within their relationships. I provide sensitive and empathetic support, assisting clients in navigating the complexities of their past traumas while fostering resilience and empowerment.

Relationship issues are another area of focus, where I draw upon my knowledge of attachment theory and transactional analysis to facilitate meaningful change. From improving communication to resolving conflicts, I collaborate with clients to create healthier and more fulfilling relationship dynamics.

Committed to maintaining the highest standards of practice, I am an accredited therapist dedicated to ongoing professional development. Through continuous training and education, I ensure that my clients receive the highest standard of care and support on their journey towards healing and self-discovery.

I deeply value the therapeutic relationship and strive to create a safe and nurturing space where clients feel seen, heard, and understood. It would be an honour to accompany you on your path towards personal growth and transformation.

Member organisations

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.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.

If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.
