About Me

I am a registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and an accredited member of the National Counselling Society.

As a member of these organisations I am duty bound to act both ethically and legally, regarding my client’s psychological and physical wellbeing. A complaints procedure is available on request. As a private practitioner, it is mandatory I receive regular supervision to ensure the ethical principles are being upheld. These principles are Autonomy, (allowing the client to be self- governing) Beneficence, (a commitment to benefiting the client) and Non-Maleficence (avoiding harm to the client).

Qualifications

I have been training for the past 4 years as a Person Centered counsellor and have gained a level 5 diploma in this modality. I have experience in working with clients who have substance misuse and young people within an educational setting. This has given me experience of a wide range of presentations such as early life trauma, attachment disorder, self-harm and depression. I have had training with motivational interviewing and the cycle of change, the latter is a CBT model that can be applied to anyone contemplating giving up unhealthy coping strategies.

I have also a Higher National Diploma in Holistic therapy (aroma/reflexology massage) this informs me of the importance an embodied experience within therapeutic practise. In 2017 I completed re wilding therapy training course with the Sweet Track Counselling services in Glastonbury.

I have background experience in retail management, and volunteer development for a leading charity.
