About me

I am a Humanistic therapist and I believe in the ability of every individual to:

  • grow and develop their full potential
  • make positive long-lasting changes
  • tap into their own inner wisdom
  • live in a full and satisfying way

The above includes being able to manage and overcome difficulties and problems along the way. These are part of life and yet they offer;

  • an opportunity for new understanding
  • a new way to cope
  • a new way of living
  • an opportunity to improve relationships with others

Humanistic therapy focuses on health whilst acknowledging that our lives today are influenced by our past experience. This includes the result of a past trauma or a major event often associated with loss of some kind.

It also includes the way we have developed a view of who we are and our ability to deal with life in general, plus difficulties that come our way. Sometimes that includes a belief that we should be able to manage or cope with everything on our own without showing too much emotion.

My approach is collaborative based in my belief that each person has their own inner knowing and wisdom. However sometimes we need an independent trained person to assist us.

Counselling and Psychotherapy offers a safe, non-judgemental and confidential environment in which clients can bring their concerns. It is a place in which individuals can explore areas of their life that are painful, problematic and/or are making them feel stuck. Sometimes a person can identify a particular difficulty and sometimes there is just a sense that life has become difficult and that they feel unhappy, depressed, lost or confused. By providing a relationship of trust and acceptance and by actively listening to the client, an individual can;

  • better understand themselves or their difficulties
  • find a way forward
  • broaden their choices/options
  • resolve a situation or problem
  • bring closure to past hurts and regrets
  • discover a more meaningful and satisfying way to live

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

BACP

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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
