About me

I have a private practice near Framlingham for counselling and counsellor supervision. I am an experienced BACP Senior Accredited and Registered counsellor who has worked in the field of counselling since 1997. Alongside my private practice, I have worked in a GP surgery and in the voluntary sector with the bereavement service, CRUSE, and at Saint Francis Hospice, Havering, where I held the position of Supervisor. I also worked for Family Care Counselling Service in Waltham Abbey for 14 years, so I have a wide range of experience in general counselling.

I see individuals, aged 16 and over, for time-limited and long-term work. My approach to counselling is based on admiration and respect for my clients. My intention is to provide a safe space for us to explore the issues affecting you. Although I will not give you advice, I will support you in discovering what is best for you.

I am an adoption counsellor working with Barnardo's LINK Adoption Services to provide counselling to those affected by adoption, including birth mothers, adopters, or those who have been adopted. I have also undergone further training in Attachment Focused counselling. I am qualified to provide Adoption Support work (through Barnardo’s) if you are an adopter, adoptee or birth parent or are in any way directly affected by adoption.

I offer professional supervision to qualified and trainee counsellors. I also supervise those who are working towards their BACP accreditation.

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
