I have been working in a variety of settings over many years within the voluntary sector. I have spent time working within hospice care, working with young people, with those with work related issues and and also working with male and female survivors of rape and sexual abuse.
Training, qualifications & experience
With a MSc in Psychotherapy and Counselling, I am a MBACP Accredited Psychotherapist and a member of UKRCP, the register for Independent Counsellors and Psycotherapists. My life journey has brought me to work in a variety of areas and as a result commit myself to ongoing development as this will always give me as an individual and a practioner growth and greater understanding of myself and of my work with clients.
I also offer supervision to fellow counsellors and trainees with a variety of experience working within the NHS, EAPs and private sector.

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.
