About me and my therapy practice
I am a Senior Accredited Member of BACP. I hold a Diploma in Counselling and an Advanced Certificate in Counselling Children, Young People and Families. I have been counselling for over 15 years and have taken several specialist training courses, including 50 hours of CBT training and 30 hours in the therapeutic use of mindfulness. I recently completed a 2 year university course on Applied Positive Psychology - the science of wellbeing.
My work is flexible, focused on each individual client. People may present with similar issues but what works with one client is often different to what works for someone else. I listen empathically to your situation and help you work out what is behind the difficulties that have brought you to counselling. We can then explore techniques that may help and the choices you face.
What differentiates my work is the way in which I bring together my life experiences, my previous business career, over 15 years counselling experience and my ongoing professional training and am able to apply them to your situation. I follow the latest research and guidance, and blend this with my intuition, insight and empathy to help you, rather than following a pre-set programme.
I am registered with the ICO (Information Commissioners Office) which means I need to tell you what data I am collecting from you and what I intend to do with it. I am also a Senior Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and am bound by their ethical codes of Practice regarding the storing of client information and client confidentiality.
