My approach emphasises on helping clients to better understand themselves and be more confident in the choices they make. I am an Integrative counsellor who has training in different approaches mine include person centred, psychodynamic and behavioural therapy, this also enables me to tailor counselling to suit individual clients and their needs. 

I have experiences in a range of different mental health issues which include depression, anxiety, bereavement, relationships, self-esteem and trauma.

I work hard to understand my client’s concerns, in a safe and confidential environment without judgement and with empathy. We all have challenging times and dilemmas, that we face at different times in our lives, we may need support with. It is not easy to reach out for support when we may feel vulnerable and unsure.

I have a diploma in therapeutic counselling and trained for 4 years to achieve this. I also engage regularly in cpd and safe guarding training. My counselling training included person-centred, psychodynamic, humanistic and behavioural therapy. I have experience with a range of different issues which include anxiety, depression, self-esteem, relationships and bereavement.

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.
