Counselling & Psychotherapy can help you to talk about your personal situation, difficulties and life problems in a safe and consistent setting. By talking about your thoughts, feelings, actions and experiences, you can create a better position to understand what may be undermining your sense of well-being, self-esteem and confidence.
My practice is a professional counselling & psychotherapy service for adults providing:
Therapy for individuals and couples, creating a secure foundation for personal reflection in a contained and confidential setting.
Assistance with personal difficulties, problems and life issues, whilst respecting individual, family and cultural values.
A regard to both the conscious and unconscious processes that may be playing an important dynamic within parts of the self and in relationships with others.
The basis for someone looking for new meaning, changes to their life and working through present day problems by acquiring insight, options and choices.
A belief in the principle that problems, anxiety and distress in the present, relate and connect to earlier life experiences.

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 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.
Accredited register membership
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.
