'Thank you so much for the work we have done, it has been the best investment I have made in my life.'
This is what a client who ended talking therapy with me recently wrote to me.
Choosing the right therapist could be the most important decision you'll ever make. But how do you go about choosing one from all the many therapists out there?
I have 20 years' experience as talking therapist and my work is built on four solid cornerstones...
1. Experience. 2. Empathy. 3. Practicality. 4. Results.
BTW I am a BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist and BACP Senior Accredited Supervisor.
I welcome new talking therapy clients and supervisees. Please text or email me text me to schedule a free, no obligation introductory Zoom call of up to 25 minutes in which we can discuss your reasons for contacting me and you can ask me anything you like!

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.
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 membership
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.
