Who I am
I’ve been a counsellor/psychotherapist for over 10 years now, working therapeutically with individuals, partners and couples. I’m also a trained systemic psychotherapist, so if you need some therapy with other adults or family in your close circle, we can discuss this possibility. I have worked with Macmillan alongside people affected with cancer and their loved ones, and I currently work for a large relationship charity alongside my private practice work.
How I work
I’m an integrative psychotherapist, which means I use several different models of counselling. These include systemic, psychodynamic, person-centred, cognitive-behavioural and narrative models, and means I am able to work in a very flexible way. I have a large tool box! I’m warm, approachable, empathic and calm, with lots of life experience to bring to the table.
I have an MA with distinction in Relationship Therapy, and an MSc with distinction in Contemporary Psychosexual Therapy. Both qualifications are validated by Hull University.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I work within the BACP ‘Ethical Framework for Counsellors’, and the BACP Guidelines for Online Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am also a Registered Member of the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT) and work within their ethical framework. Information relating to this can be found at: www.bacp.co.uk and www.cosrt.org.uk. I hold full professional liability insurance as required by these organisations.
I am trained to work online and via telephone, and have a qualification in Online and Telephone Counselling. This is recognised by the Association for Counselling and Therapy Online (ACTO), of which I am a member, and I also work within their ethical framework. https://acto-org.uk
I have an up to date Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Services Certificate which allows me to work with vulnerable adults.
