I have been working with people of all ages, cultures and backgrounds in a therapeutic setting for over 20 years. My way of working is integrative; I use Person-centred and Psycho-dynamic approaches, some CBT, mindfulness and person-centred art therapy where appropriate.
I aim to work in an inclusive, respectful and flexible way offering a safe and confidential space to gain a greater understanding and awareness of the issues brought to therapy. I address issues such as depression, anxiety, bereavement and life stage changes .I offer both short term solution-focused therapy and open-ended long term therapy looking at issues on a deeper level.
I am currently offering on-line and telephone sessions.
Training, qualifications & experience
I qualified as a counsellor in 2008 with a diploma in advanced therapeutic counselling, prior to that I worked with people of all ages cultures and backgrounds in a therapeutic setting . I am a registered and accredited member of BACP
Registered / Accredited
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.
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.
