I am a qualified and experienced counsellor, bringing a broad range of experience to my counselling and supervision practice. I have worked with children (play therapy), teenagers, adults and groups in a variety of places and in different ways.
I enjoy counselling and aim to offer a relationship where personal issues can be explored safely and confidentially.
Who am I? like you I am complex. I care about many things; I am curious and I want to keep 'growing' as a person.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a person-centred counsellor and supervisor. This means I am trained to work with your agenda, not mine. It is very important that I offer you deep respect without judging you. I draw on a broad range of skills in my work with you.
I have an M.A. in Counselling (with Distinction) and a Diploma in Counselling from Durham University. I have a Certificate in Counselling Supervision (COSCA). I am trained in Emotion-Focused Therapy (Level 3). I have a Certified Cyber Therapy qualification - Online Therapy Institute (Feb ’21).
I am an Accredited counsellor with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and follow their Ethical Framework for Good Practice.
I am on the United Kingdom Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (UKRCP).
I am an Authorised Bridge Pastoral Foundation (BPF) Small Group Facilitator (Senior).
I have worked in General Practice, a hospice and in projects involving children. I was employed as a school counsellor; I have a private practice (mainly adults and teenagers, but includes play therapy).
I have a special interest in spirituality and body work.
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 membership
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.
