I aim to offer a warm, professional & confidential counselling service, where clients can feel safe to discuss any concerns they may have. I work with adults, young people and couples for short or long term counselling.
I have been a fully qualified counsellor for 20 plus years and have gained a wide range of counselling experience from working within private practice, a doctors surgery, a comprehensive school and University setting and an NHS employee counselling service. In addition, I undertake work for Medical Companies and Employee Assisted Programmes.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a BA (Hons) Counselling & Psychotherapy, an Advanced Diploma in Counselling and a Post Graduate Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy (BABCP). I work to their code of ethics and untertake regular continuing Professional Development.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
