About me and my therapy practice

I am a BACP registered, Integrative Therapeutic Counsellor, with over 4 years of experience in offering counselling to young people and adults from 13yrs onward, working for a local charity and in schools. I work under the guidelines of the ethical framework required by the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy), which ensures our safety while working together (for full details, please review this link: https://www.bacp.co.uk/events-and-resources/ethics-and-standards/ethical-framework-for-the-counselling-professions/ethics/).

Life has a habit of surprising us and I have experience working with a broad range of life’s issues, some of which are detailed below. My background is in corporate Financial Services, which enables me to have insight into the pressures that world can bring. I am also a parent and, as such, have experienced first hand, the stresses and strains that come with this role, which has been invaluable in my counselling practice.

As an Integrative Therapist, I work with both Person-Centred and Psychodynamic theory, which we will use to shape our sessions together, to suit us in working towards whatever it is that has brought you to counselling.

Because your autonomy is paramount to our sessions and my approach, I work flexibly with this integrated model and you would not have to explore anything you did not feel safe to.

My experience has allowed me to see how counselling allows personal development to anyone at anytime, through learning about all aspects of what makes us who we are, and working towards us being able to take control of who we want to be, through building self-awareness, self-acceptance and resilience.
