Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Counselling and I am a accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP (Accred)) and I work within their Ethical Framework for Good Practice.

I hold a certificate in Couples counselling. 

I am a UKRCP Registered Independent Counsellor. 
 
My approach is Humanistic and Integrative, which means the relationship I form with my client, is as important therapeutically as the techniques and methods I use. When working with my client I am able to draw on my knowledge of
Gestalt
CBT
Person Centred &
Psychodynamic
counselling approaches.

Following a career in IT and becoming a mother of two I retrained as a counsellor. I was drawn to working as a counsellor by my many emotional life experiences and through them I have learnt that I can help make a difference to peoples lives.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.
