COVID-19 UPDATE - Telephone & Online/Video counselling available via https://onlinecounselling.today (face-to-face appointments available once the covid-19 crisis is over).
I am a BACP registered Counsellor with over 12 yrs experience. I provide a tailored counselling approach for clients to explore troubling thoughts & feelings, such as anxiety, panic & depression and family or relationship problems.
As an experienced integrative counsellor, I can offer you a safe relationship to explore anything troubling you in complete confidence.
You may be feeling upset and distressed and have problems with your feelings, thoughts, relationships with others, or behaviour. Have you experienced a sudden life crisis such as bereavement or job loss? Maybe you lack direction, and life doesn't make any sense.
My therapy is an integration of Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
I tailor the therapeutic interventions to the client rather than make the client fit into one mode of therapy.

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.

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).
