I am a Senior Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, the BACP. This is a stringent qualification requiring evidence of extensive training and experience over a number of years supported by written work and references.
My original training was as an Integrative Therapeutic Counsellor in 2001 where I gained knowledge and experience in four different theoretical models and approaches. This enables me to work with your individual needs and issues that are unique to you. Working therapeutically with a humanistic approach ensures I work and support you in a process devoid of any religious influences or pre-disposed beliefs.
Throughout my 14 years of working, I have completed further training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Couples and Relationships as well as many workshops and conferences to extend my knowledge.
I work according to the code and ethics of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). As a member of BACP I am bound by its ethical framework for good practise in Counselling and Psychotherapy and subject to the professional conduct procedure therein.
Accredited Counsellor with BACP;
Accreditation and registration is a stringent qualification requiring evidence of extensive training and experience over a number of years supported by written work and references.
I have wide ranging experience and can help you deal with post-traumatic stress, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, anxiety, panic attacks, bereavement, eating disorders, relationship problems, post-addiction and mild forms of depression in my private practice.
Previously I have also worked with victims of crime, abuse, rape, sexual assault and domestic violence and mentored women in prison.
My work is either on a one-to-one basis with individuals, or with couples where both parties choose to come into counselling voluntarily.
