About me

I am a fully qualified professional counsellor and psychotherapist, accredited with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and registered with the BPC, working with clients on a once weekly basis for either short term or open-ended counselling depending on individual needs. My core training is psychodynamic but I also have a basic qualification in CBT.
My rooms are quiet and I aim to provide a peaceful environment where my clients can feel safe and contained in a confidential setting.

Post-covid I am meeting my clients in person or via the zoom platform depending on their wishes, the need to keep both them and myself safe and their current individual situation.  I am also working on the telephone.  The covid years have taught us many things and an increased adaptability is significant on the list.  I believe it has made counselling and psychotherapy available to more people and that is a very good outcome from a difficult time.

I subscribe to the BACP and the BPC code of ethics and practice.

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.

BPC

British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC)

The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) is a professional association, representing the profession of psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.

BPC registrants are governed by a code of ethics, a policy of continuing professional development, a statement on confidentiality and a complaints procedure. The BPC is a Member Society of the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the Public Sector (EFPP). Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
