I run a private practice offering person centred counselling for adults and children, individuals and couples. My approach is to offer a gentle supportive relationship in comfortable surroundings where clients can work on issues that hold their life back in any way.
I appreciate the courage it takes to make the first step towards committing to counselling and offer a sincere, caring relationship with you through this difficult process, to work towards personal growth and fulfilment for my clients.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have 10 years experience counselling young people, couples and individuals. I have a level 3 diploma in person centred counselling and a further certificate in sex and relationship counselling. My approach to sex and relationship counselling is very much 'head and heart', not a purely physical approach.
My work with children has been mainly under 16's who have experienced sexual abuse. I have also 4 years experience working with issues around self esteem and resilience building.
I use multiple techniques and approaches within a person centred framework.
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.
