I am a BACP Accredited counsellor working in private practice.
I mainly counsel clients with the following issues :
Workplace Stress and Depression
The NHS and NICE recommend ‘Talking Treatments’ for Stress and Depression; either talking therapy or cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). I am qualified in both. My integrative approach to counselling means that I would have recourse to both techniques and use the method we agree would be most appropriate to your issues.
Generalised Anxiety and Panic Disorder
I am an Anxiety UK Approved and NICE qualified Counsellor.
Employee Assistance Programmes
As a result of these programmes I have counselled employees from Tesco, the Post Office, University of York and other major employers. I have the following official designations:
BUPA Approved Psychotherapist
Anxiety UK Approved Therapist
Psychotherapist on the Private Practice Register
Affiliate Counsellor for Lifeworks
I have considerable experience counselling young people in colleges and universities. From 2014 to 2017 I was the Counselling Manager at Selby College.
My core training was intersubjective. I believe the key to successful counselling is a co-creation of the therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client.
I work with within the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions and am committed to continuing professional development.
I have a current DBS check (2017).
