Building a therapeutic relationship is an enjoyable and essential aspect of therapy and one that I feel privileged to be a part of. It is fulfilling to be a part of someone's life, to support growth and experience change.
Talking therapies give us the opportunity to explore our experiences introspectively, as though we are an onlooker of our life events past and present. As your therapist I will encourage and support you to define and discover how those experiences impact on your decisions and behaviour.
Accessing support can be a difficult step to take, the prospect of being one's true self with another can be daunting. My years of experience of working closely with people's lives has developed a broad-mindedness that is open to all thought. You will have a safe space where you will be met with a non-judgemental attitude. The sharing of all your thoughts and feelings will be encouraged and respected.
Therapy can be a life altering experience and I look forward to being a part of it.
Training, qualifications & experience

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.

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).

As an Integrative Therapist I will work with you from a humanistic - relational perspective. This is informed by Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural theory, which considers the past as impactful on present thoughts, feelings and behaviour.
The specific type of approach will depend on your needs and goals in attending therapy.
Call 07939 901869 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an initial session to discuss your therapeutic needs.
Initial sessions are important for understanding your needs both in terms of what you bring to therapy and what you want from it. This includes deciding if I am the right therapist for you. This is central to developing the trusting relationship required for therapy. Your autonomy is an integral part of these initial sessions and will continue throughout the therapeutic relationship.
I am able to provide sessions face to face - working in a therapy room or through walking therapy and online therapy.
