Integrative Therapist

About me

I am an integrative psychotherapist, working with Humanistic, and Psychodynamic approaches

Working relationally, i provide an empathic safe space to help individuals express, and explore  thought processes, feelings and behaviours, and, or, work through  Psychological or  Emotional Difficulties, Feelings of Sadness, Anxiety or Depression

I place great emphasis on establishing a good therapeutic "Relationship" between Myself & Patient as a vital part of the process, and as such, am open-minded, non-judgemental and respect, and support inclusion, and difference & diversity with a passion 

My experience covers a wide range of issues, including:

*Addiction

*Adverse Childhood Experiences

*Attachment Disorders

*Behavioural issues

*Codependancy

*Eating disorders

*Emotional issues, such as Anger or Grief

*Mental Ill health, Anxiety and Depression

*Narcissistic Abuse

*Relationship difficulties

*Unresolved Trauma

*Dialectical Behaviour Therapy

DBT is a clinically 'proven' technique which blends compassion focused therapies to help individuals with personality disorders, and others' who might be described as "highly- sensitive"

DBT advocates self acceptance, and compassion, and helps support better management of  emotions to help regulate potentially destructive behaviours.

I integrate this modality within a psycho analytical framework, and it is my main point of reference for helping individuals manage, or alleviate distressing symptoms, improve emotional responses to external or internal stimuli, and improve Interpersonal Relationships

* Specialise in the Treatment of Addictions, and Mental Health Issues

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.
