If you have been considering therapy to see you through a period of difficulty, I offer a confidential space in which you can safely express your thoughts and feelings without fear of criticism or judgement.
Counselling could help you if you are currently experiencing any kind of dissatisfaction or confusion in any area of your life. It also enables you to gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your present situation and empowers you to make effective decisions and choices.
Counselling is an activity in which you must choose to engage; no one should force or pressurise you into attending. For more information please visit my website.
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am bound by their Ethical Framework for The Counselling Professions, BACP registered and accredited.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at the Metanoia Institute in Ealing, which is recognised internationally as a place of teaching and learning excellence. I specialised in Counselling using The Person Centred Approach and gained a Diploma and BA (Hons) degree.
Both these qualifications have enabled me to work long and short term with adults and young people in private practice, agency environments and secondary schools for the past fifteen years.
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.
