About me

I help clients experiencing difficulty or dissatisfaction in their lives, to come into a better relationship with themselves, through a process of supportive enquiry.

This approach can address many forms of difficulty including anxiety, depression, panic attacks, addiction, relationship difficulties and burn-out.

A basic understanding in psychotherapy is that difficulties arise from an inner disconnection and loss of a sense of healthy relationship both within oneself and with others in the world.

Often this disconnection might have arisen in early life where one’s capacity to manage difficult experience was overwhelmed.

I support a client in a process of mindful enquiry that is a way of coming more into relationship with what feels difficult or stuck as well as connecting with what supports well-being and health.

As someone's capacity to be with a wider range of emotions increases, they may touch on deeper feelings of vulnerability but at the same time develop a greater emotional resilience.

Over time a client will develop greater understanding of themselves and their patterns of behaviour and begin to gradually free themselves from habitual ways of being that have outlived their usefulness.

This work takes time, but there are real rewards including a greater connection with one’s own energies and a greater capacity to meet life's challenges.

I have done an initial training in Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing and I am able to offer this approach within my practice. It is particularly effective in dealing with a single event trauma such as an accident.

I am insured and in regular supervision. I abide by the code of ethics of the Karuna Institute (UKCP) and of the BACP.

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.

BACP

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.

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. 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.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
