I believe each person is unique and I endeavour to use my integrative approach to work with each individual towards their therapeutic goal.
Individual counselling can be short term or longer term, dependent on each client's specific needs. I am able to offer an integrative approach including Person-Centred, Brief Solution Focused Therapy and CBT. Counselling commences on a weekly basis, moving to fortnightly or more infrequently when the client feels ready.
My counselling practice is based in Lincoln, close to the city centre.
I am a BACP Registered Senior Accredited Counsellor and UKRCP Registered Individual Counsellor and use my twelve years of counselling experience to offer Counselling Supervision to newly trained and experienced counsellors.

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 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.
