I am currently working online due to CV.
I offer Core Process Psychotherapy, which is a mindfulness based practice. My aim is to recognise patterns of behaviour which may be holding you back from your full potential. By enquiring into patterns which arise in our sessions I am able to offer support with specific issues, as well as in depth therapy. Each individual will require a bespoke plan with regular reviews. I aim to work with you, and assist you to shed whatever is no longer useful, and cultivate your true nature.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have done a Masters degree in Core Process Psychotherapy at the Karuna Institute.
It is an in depth Psychotherapy training which was established in 1982. It is underpinned by Buddhist philosophy and mindfulness practices, which is integrated with western personality theory, psychodynamics and Psychotherapy skills.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I offer a free one hour preliminary session to discuss your needs. Our first hour is used to discuss the practicalities of starting Psychotherapy: the cost, confidentially, expectations and also answer any questions you may have. I encourage all clients to have 24-48 hours to reflect before deciding on if therapy is appropriate for them, and not to decide on the spot. It is a big decision to take to invest in yourself, and to commit to weekly therapy sessions.
I do not advertise prices as I trust that mindful negotiation of price is a good way to start off a healthy therapeutic relationship. It can also be challenging, but it is all part of the therapy.
