I would like to extend a warm welcome to you. I am a Humanistic counsellor trained in Person Centred, Gestalt and Transactional Analysis approaches. My own experiences in life led me on this journey. For as long as I can remember, I have had an innate pull to support those who wish to live a life that meets the needs of their true authentic self. What do I mean by authentic? It simply means coming from a real place within. A place that supports your words and actions. A place that is congruent with your own beliefs and values. A place where you feel confident enough to be yourself, rather than, trying to ‘fit in’ with the expectations of what others deem to be right for you.
If you believe others only respect you when you act a certain way, it can be easy to fall into a downward spiral of feeling as if you aren’t good enough. Feelings of worthlessness can greatly impact your wellbeing, have a detrimental effect on how you see yourself and the world around you. Essentially, stopping you living the life that you want to live.
In our time together, I endeavour to create a safe, empathic therapeutic relationship and environment where you are accepted and valued as you are. I offer long, or short-term counselling where I walk alongside you, so that you may explore issues and life experiences that are preventing you from reaching your full potential or causing you emotional difficulties. Trusting the direction in which you wish to partake as you inherently know what is best for you. Through self-awareness you will be able to understand yourself more fully. This can then support you in developing your unique strengths, creativity, and personal values. In turn, you may feel empowered to live a life that enables you to meet the needs of your ‘real self.’
Training, qualifications & experience
I am trained as a Humanistic Counsellor. I obtained my degree and diploma at the Metanoia Institute and Middlesex University London.
I am also a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (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
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.
