About me

My intention is to hold a warm, non judgemental and empathic space where I will walk beside you as we explore and untangle the thoughts and feelings that have led you to seek help at this time.  Whether you are looking for solutions to specific issues - depression, stress, bereavement, etc - or whether you are suffering from a loss of purpose and meaning, or looking for answers to deeper questions, I believe that through the forming of a strong psychotherapeutic relationship, change is inevitable.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a PGDip in Psychotherapeutic Counselling (Psychosynthesis) so approach life from a psycho-spiritual perspective.  I have undertaken a number of trainings which include our connection with nature as integral to our recovery, and I will be offering Walk & Talk Therapy from a local woodland, as well as bringing other ways to work in nature.

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.
