About me

I am an integrative counsellor based in Market Harborough in the East Midlands, having trained at the Leicester Centre for Psychodynamic Counselling and Goldsmiths, University of London. 

I work with adult individuals who are struggling with stress, anxiety, depression and/or relationship issues. I also help couples to talk through their problems and focus on next steps and a path forward. 

For individual therapy, my training is psychodynamic, and as such I take a particular interest in a client’s internal world and how it came to be formed through early experiences and relationships. 

When working with couples, my approach is systemic: we look at the context of the relationship, and how the dynamics within it are affecting each individual's emotional needs. We work in a goal-oriented way to try and improve communication and to focus on the aims of each member of the couple. 

I work with individuals of any gender, relationship or sexual identity and focus on the therapeutic relationship to provide change for clients, in a safe and non-judgmental environment.

Therapy takes place once a week and is usually open-ended, although I do also offer short-term focused work.

Appointments take place at the same time and on the same day each week and are 50 minutes long (60 or 90 minutes for couples). I offer sessions Monday to Friday. To book an assessment, please email me at thomasin@makepeacehouse.com.

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.
