I offer counselling for most issues and personal development work. I have had a private practice since 2005 and in Buntingford since 2008 when I moved from London. I work mainly with individuals and couples and also from time to time run groups on various themes including personal development.
Although my main training is in person centred counselling, my therapeutic approach is an integration of all my training, CPD and personal experience I have engaged in over many years. This has led me to developing my personal way of working.
More recently I have taken a particular interest in relational therapy and the unconscious dynamics of human relationships and this now considerably informs my work.
Training, qualifications & experience
I first became seriously interested in psychology around 1990 and since then, in addition to my main counselling training, have over the years engaged in a varied and substantial amount of individual and group work. This includes 3 years in an eating disorder group, 3 years in a psychodrama group and 5 years in an analytical group. I worked for 7 years as counsellor and group facilitator for 7 years for Barnet Carers. I have engaged in over 7 years of my own personal counselling and therapy and am regularly involved in various CPD activities including ongoing groups and peer work.
I received my Degree in Person Centred Counselling in 2005 from Middlesex University and my BACP Accreditation in 2010 and work to the ethics and standards of the BACP Ethical Framework.
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.
