About me

CORONAVIRUS:
Updated 01.06.22 Following Government legislation I am still offering Face to Face therapy. I have updated my furniture so that this can be disinfected between clients, I have hand sanitiser available upon entry. There will be more time between clients so I can sanitise the room and ventilate the room, there will be fewer clients per day using the room. There is a separate entrance for clients and a 2 meter distance between yourself the client and myself the therapist.  I will provide face masks if required however not mandatory.  I will not be offering refreshments so as to minimise contact so please bring your own and toilet facilities will not be available at this time.

I have provided Counselling and Hypnopsychotherapy from a designated area in my home since 2006 with ample parking at the side. I come from a Person Centred foundation however work in an integrative way depending on your needs at the time.

I have a Masters in CBT and feel this integrates well into achieving healing and change. Change can be quite scary however healing and growth can be exciting too, finding balance can be achieved in therapy thus providing a better quality of life and tools to help you cope in the future.

Please see website: https://cbtclinicsnorthwest.co.uk for further details of my service and my experience.....

I am an Accredited member of the BACP and a member of the BABCP and insured by Howdens insurance.

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.
