About me and my therapy practice

I am an integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor (MBACP -Dip) registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I trained and qualified at Re.Vision (The Centre of Integrative Transpersonal Counselling & Psychotherapy). I am governed and adhere to the BACP codes of ethics, which requires me to regularly attend and maintain my practice/record keeping/be in supervision, providing a client with an accountable governing body ensuring I practice to the highest of standards.

My background is in addictions and family systemic work. I have worked in the public, charity and private sectors for 17 years with individuals, couples, families and groups.

I currently work in both private practice and in a charity working with adverse childhood experiences.

Practice description

Emerging evidence from clinical research suggests that it is the depth and quality of relationship and not necessarily the type of therapy received, that repairs the wounds of childhood attachment difficulties. What is recognised as important and crucial to this process is that you are seen, heard and accepted, so that new ways of relating emerge, creating a deeper connection to self and others.

Holding this in mind, I practise in a relationally-oriented and clinically grounded way, offering both long- and short-term therapy. Counselling can offer a supportive space to help manage something difficult or help to see things differently, or from a different perspective. I offer a confidential space in which to explore, at your own pace, the difficulties you may be facing at this time. I am an integrative transpersonal counsellor and work relationally, meaning the heart of the work is a respectful therapeutic relationship with my clients.

Therapy can be a safe space to explore and feel the losses we might not have fully grieved. Grieving the lost parts of ourselves as well as grieving for what is lost or what was never ours. Attending to the parts of ourselves that have been neglected, forgotten or banished can be a painful yet healing and restorative process. Slowly these split off parts of ourselves can be brought back from the shadows and into the light of day, so they may be reintegrated into the body, heart and soul, making us feel more whole and present in our lives. 

My first session

Once you make contact I will set up an initial assessment. This session forms the assessment lasting 50mins. This is to assess your presenting issues and to go over the boundaries and function of therapy. I believe that in this session it is as much about you assessing me, as it is me assessing you.

It is important that you feel safe and able to work with me in order to begin a commitment to therapy.

During this session we will also discuss cost, frequency and confidentiality boundaries. You will also have every opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
