About me

Counselling can offer help and support to people experiencing a variety of problems. Many can feel helpless, lost, hopeless, alone and confused. Perhaps you have experienced the loss of a relationship or a loved one or a traumatic event(s). There are times in which we cannot identify the reason we may feel a certain way, some of these can be anxiety, stress or fluctuating mood or an inability to manage life when those around you appear to be coping.

Counselling offers the opportunity to speak with someone who is not a member of your family or friendship group in a safe space without judgement and in confidence. It can help to provide awareness and insight into how our experiences and beliefs can shape our thoughts and behaviours., and in turn can leave us feeling or believing that something is wrong with us. Counselling can help lead us towards a greater clarity and awareness of ourselves and how we perceive our current feelings and thoughts as unmanageable. Through the counselling process we can move towards a healthier way of being.

I believe that we all have the capability within us to change direction and to overcome problems but sometimes we need support and a helping hand to enable us to recognise our potential and to find new ways of being.

I am an experienced therapist who offers a warm, confidential and safe environment for you to explore what is troubling you. Although counselling is not about curing or fixing a person, it is a space that you can talk, be heard and equip yourself to move towards a more fulfilling life.

I work within an integrative approach – This means that our work together will be a blend of varying theoretical thinking to meet your individual needs. It is my belief that we have the capability, drawing on our innate resources to find our own way of being. As your therapist I will be a part of the process to guide, support and ensure that you are able to find the answers you are looking for. I aim to address both the causes and the symptoms of emotional and psychological difficulties.

Training, qualifications & experience

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.
