My approach depends on the client and where they are. I am best suited to clients who are ready to change but maybe need a little help in achieving this change.
I work dynamically and offer multiple tools to build up clients resilience and feelings of control over themselves and their environment. These are shared on 'client notes' which I see as a lifelong companion to the client.
In terms of philosophy, I like to think we are all 'beautiful messes' and works in progress. Life is about trying to have as much fun as we can on our journey.
I specialise in relationships; whether this be couples, families, friends or business.

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.

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).
