Pa Counselling Service

About me

I am a qualified BACP accredited counsellor and supervisor offering professional help and support to both individuals and couples of all ages. My work with clients is both short and long term depending on what suits the individual.

My core training was as a person centred counsellor, however, I use an integrative approach because I believe each person is unique and it is important to be flexible and tailor sessions to meet each clients particular needs.

As well as working as a counsellor and supervisor, I was a lecturer at North Herts College and Space2Learn where I taught person centred counselling courses.  I currently teach at ICT in Bedford.

At my private practice I offer both counselling and supervision and have gained much experience working with many different issues and a diverse range of clients/supervisees, including students training to become counsellors.  I worked for The Hope Programme, which specialises in sexual abuse and rape trauma.

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.
