About me

Are you stuck in unhelpful patters of behavior? Do you struggle within relationships either personally or professionally? Do you have unhealthy coping habits? Stressed, Anxious or Angry? If so then offer yourself the space to come and work with me. 

I specialize in working with clients to identify their patterns of behavior based on understood personal belief systems and values within roles, relationships and self. Through the process the clients self awareness develops this promotes change and acceptance.  

My approach to the therapy is to focus on providing a safe trusting relationship and going at the clients pace. This means there is no expectations on the time and commitment the clients counselling is client led.   

Within consultation we will discuss your availability and expectations and cater your therapy to what suits you.  

I am a qualified and experienced person centered counsellor. Using aspects of object relations to work on the foundation of relationship. I am trained in CBT and solution focused therapy, introducing interventions and signposting to helpful material to encourage the client to incorporate new skills into day to day life.

  • Counselling 8+ Children within a play therapy setting.
  • Teenagers and adults with a wide range of issues.
  • Maintaining professional boundaries, placement standards and ethical practice regulated by the BACP.
  • Safeguarding clients, making referrals, sign posting clients.
  • Attend Supervision to ensure I provide the clients with a safe and ethical practice.
  • Attend regular CPD training and annual courses to maintain a high standard of knowledge and professional development. 

My commitment to clients is to provide a confidential, safe listening space, where the client feels heard prioritized and focus on development of well being.

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.
