About me


I am an Integratively trained counsellor with experience of working therapeutically with adults, children and young people, and also as a supervisor.

As an Integrative Counsellor I work within a framework of Personal Construct Psychology, together with Psychodynamic, Person Centred and Cognitive Behavioural models of counselling. "This approach recognises and values the connections, not always conscious, between a person's inner and outer experiences and the significance of their past in relation to their present. The therapeutic potential of the relationship between myself and the client as we work together, can enable you to look at how you relate to yourself and how you relate to others." Being integratively trained means that I have a wide knowledge of different counselling theories, which I can use and adapt to suit clients
individual needs.

I am trained and experienced in working with children and adolescents and with parents concerned about their children, whether they are newborns or teenagers. I work within a variety of child centred interventions, always being mindful of the child's history, their attachment style and developmental stages. I am also happy to see parents on their own to help them think about their children's needs and difficulties or the stresses they are experiencing as parents.

I offer supervision to counsellors and other practitioners who offer therapeutic support to both adult clients and children and young people.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
