BACP Registered Counsellor/Asperger Relationship Specialist

About me

I am a fully qualified counsellor with over 13 years experience of working with adults and a wide range of life issues including Anger Management, Anxiety and Depression, (including Generalised anxiety disorder and Panic disorder).  I am also experienced in working with relationship issues with individuals, couples or families.

In addition I specialise in working with couples where Asperger's Syndrome/Autism is present, either diagnosed or undiagnosed. I have extensive  experience both professionally and personally in this area and have helped many couples with the issues this can cause in relationships.

My approach is Person-centred which means that I am led by my client enabling me to tailor the therapy to the individual clients' requirements.  It is an approach which enables the client to work with what suits them and at their own pace.

I offer remote counselling via Zoom. 

All too often, counselling is thought of as an extreme measure or just for people who are ill. I believe it would benefit many of us to talk in confidence to an exceptionally responsive person about our private concerns.

Counselling gives you the chance to engage in enlightening conversation marked by curiosity, respect and kindness. Perhaps you are looking for ways to deepen your relationship, or want to learn more about what kind of parent you are. You could be facing family issues or maybe Separation or Divorce. Maybe you are frustrated by aspects of your working life, and know you could be more productive and fulfilled.  Maybe you are facing situations that are new to you. Whatever your interest or concern, counselling can take you on a fascinating and valuable tour of your own psyche.

Counselling is carried out in a safe and confidential environment.  You will be working with a trained professional who is experienced in dealing with all aspects of peoples’ lives.  Experienced to help you with the challenges and opportunities to you face, working with you so that you can identify the best way for you to deal with things.

Member organisations

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.
