ABOUT ME

I hold a diploma in counselling skills and a FdSc in Counselling from the University of Bristol. In my professional practice I work as a Humanistic Integrative Counsellor, which basically means you are at the centre of our work and will steer the direction we go in . I will cherry-pick from a variety of appropriate therapeutic counselling approaches to help and guide the process. I have over 8 years experience and knowledge  working with the following approaches in:

  • Person Centred Therapy

  • TA   - Transactional Analysis

  • ACT  - Acceptance and Commitment Therapy 

  • SFBT  - Solution Focused Brief Therapy

  • MI  - Motivational Interviewing 

  • CBT  - Cognitive Behavioural Therapy 

  • CFT  - Compassion-focussed Therapy

 

I don’t believe there is a ‘one size fits all’ solution to counselling, everyone is unique, and our bespoke one to one sessions of counselling will reflect this.

I have continued to develop my knowledge and have a high level of experience working in the field of Mental Health and Addiction.  Offering  1-1 counselling support and group facilitation at ARA The Addiction Recovery Agency, BDP Bristol Drugs Project, and DHI Developing Health and Independence. I've completed additional training in;

  • RCGP certificate in the management of alcohol issues.

  • GamCare- Gambling addiction training.

  • Neuropharmacology and drugs training.

  • Mental Health First Aid.

  • ASSIST suicide prevention.

  • Polyvagal Theory

  • PESI - Trauma Training 

  • Mindfulness Training.

Which have all given me a great foundation in supporting people with a vast array of mental, emotional, social and addictive behavioural issues, both 1-1 and within group sessions.

  • I'm a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) Registration number is 89727.  I adhere to their ethical framework for good practice, attend regular clinical supervision and ensure I take part in continuing professional development CPD training to improve my practice.

  • I am a Member of Counsellors  and Psychotherapists in Private Practice (CAPPP)

  • I hold both public liability and professional indemnity insurance.

  • I am the registered Data Controller with Information Commissioner Office (ICO)  reference  number ZA522768
