I completed my first degree in 2004 which was followed by completion of my Masters in 2005. I then qualified as a Doctor in Counselling Psychology in 2011 at the Wolverhampton University.
I am professionally registered with both the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC) and the British Psychological Society (BPS).
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.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
