About me

Are you looking for a therapist who can help you discover and understand yourself better? Do you want to feel accepted, respected and valued for who you are? If so, you may benefit from Person Centred therapy.

Person-centred therapy is a type of psychotherapy that focuses on your own experiences, feelings and perspectives. It was founded by Carl Rogers, who believed that every person has an innate tendency to grow and fulfil their potential. In person-centred therapy, you are not seen as a problem to be solved or a diagnosis to be treated. Instead, you are seen as a unique individual with your own strengths and challenges.

The role of the therapist in person-centred therapy is not to give advice, interpret or direct you. Rather, the therapist aims to provide a safe and supportive space where you can express yourself freely and authentically. The therapist also strives to be empathetic, genuine and non-judgemental towards you. This way, the therapist can help you develop a deeper understanding of yourself and your situation.

As a person-centred therapist, I am committed to creating such a therapeutic relationship with you. I will listen to you attentively and respectfully, without imposing my own views or expectations on you. I will also encourage you to explore your feelings and thoughts at your own pace and direction. My goal is to help you find your own solutions and resources within yourself.

If this sounds like something that interests you, please contact me to book a free and no obligation 15 minute discovery call.

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.

Accredited register membership

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).

Wheelchair user access
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.
