About me

Thank you for taking the time to view my profile. I am happy you are taking the first steps towards speaking to someone and getting some help and support for whatever is causing you distress. I don’t believe anyone should be struggling with their difficulties alone; that is why talking therapy is beneficial, helping you to deal with the problems that you are facing. I am currently seeing clients online and hope to move to face to face in the next year.

What to expect from counselling.

As a humanistic and integrative counsellor, I see people holistically, comprising of mind, body, emotions, and spirit. Together we can explore the whole of you as a person from your unique viewpoint without judgements but paying particular attention to the here and now of your experience. I believe that our relationship from birth and childhood, shape and determine the way we are with ourselves and how we relate to others in adulthood. My aim is to empower you to develop a deeper insight into yourself through the relationship that we develop, allowing you to find a new way of being.

Our first meeting.

Finding the right therapist for you is very important. I invite you to call me and ask questions to enable you to decide whether you feel that I’m the right therapist for you. We can then arrange a face to face consultation or online, with no obligations, where we can see how we are together and decide whether we can have an ongoing therapeutic relationship. If we do commit to working together, I offer 50-minute session at a cost of £50.00 per session which can be paid in cash or bank transfer.

Professional registration.

I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to their ethical framework and good practice guidelines. I undertake regular clinical supervision to ensure that I am working ethically and professionally and will maintain my own personal and professional development. I am also fully insured to be working in counselling and psychotherapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

BSc in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy – Staffordshire University, at the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute.

BA in Photomedia (Photography)- Bournemouth University.

I have experience working with adults and young people in charity and private sector organisations such as Leicester Counselling Centre and Bilborough College.

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.
