Counselling can feel like a big step, scary even I have described counselling as an opportunity to lay down your rucksack which is heavy to the point of being on your knees with the weight of everything that your carrying. Counselling offers the opportunity to tip out what's inside and working through the parts that are helpful and the parts that aren't, in the hope that when your ready to pick up the rucksack it's lighter and you can continue on your journey ahead.
I work with clients who are living with depression, relationship issues, anxiety and berevement. However, I mainly work and support individuals within neurodiversity (mainly autism, asperger's and dyslexia), as this is an area of both personal and professional experience within this area. I have experience in working and supporting client's from various backgrounds and ages, which has been a prividge over the years.
Currently I am able to offer online and telephone counselling. Appointments are limited, however I will try and work around your commitments and my availability. If I can not meet your availablity you will be placed on a waiting list.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified Person-Centred Counsellor and supervisor. I have also completed an Introduction to Art Psychotherapy at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh and studied Emotional Focused Therapy which is a quick and effective way of accessing and dealing with emotions.
I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) .
I have worked with people of all ages using both the Person-Centred approach, as well as my advance experience using play techniques which clients have found helpful as well as Lego therapy.
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.
