I am an Accredited Member of BACP and a COSCA Accredited Diploma Course Tutor, teaching at Certificate and Diploma Level.  I have also completed Mindfulness and Yoga Teacher Training.

Offering an approach which is grounded in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) for those who are seeking Counselling, Therapy, Training, Supervision, Mindfulness and Yoga.

Supervision and Tutoring - supporting students and practitioners with respect of their chosen therapeutic orientation. Building a trusting collaborative relationship which explores evidence based practice, theories, skill development, contracting, ethics and boundaries, functions of supervision, working with diversity and power and how the practitioner works within their contexts and role.

I have had many years of working in the voluntary sector with adults and children who are experiencing major changes, difficulties and crisis in their lives. I have been employed and volunteered in a variety of settings over the last 20 years which include setting up a Crisis Food Bank and Befriending Service with Start-Up Stirling, setting up a pilot counselling service for young people with Action in Mind and providing support in High School and College settings.  I am also experienced in working extensively with EAP and Private Health Companies.

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 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.

If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
