About me and my therapy practice
I am a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) as listed on the BACP Professional Standards Authority accredited register. I am an integrative humanistic counsellor, and my approach is informed by person centered therapy and transactional analysis.
My clinical experience includes working with clients therapeutically in private practice and NHS primary care settings, where I have experience of supporting clients who are struggling with difficulties including depression, anxiety, identity, work stress, self-esteem, trauma, bereavement/loss, life changes and relationship difficulties.
The core conditions of person centered counselling are empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard. I use these to offer a space where difficulties can be explored and heard without judgement, and with compassion and understanding for each individual’s life experiences.
I undertook my training at Northern Guild Psychotherapy and Counselling in Newcastle upon Tyne where I completed a Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling (Level 6). I also hold a Postgraduate Certificate in Psychology (Distinction) from the University of East London.
I have also worked as a lawyer in a public institution and in private practice in the City of London. I hold Postgraduate Law qualifications as well as a BA (Hons) Degree in Modern Foreign Languages (French, Spanish & Catalan).
My first session
I offer a free initial 15 minute discovery call (video consultation via Microsoft Teams) as an opportunity to discuss my therapeutic approach and ask any practical questions around booking an assessment session and the process of starting counselling.
