I offer short or long term face to face counselling for any problem and only charge £30 per hour (£40 for couples/families) as I believe that counselling should be available to as many people as possible. I have over 20 years experience in counselling all ages. I truly believe that the client is the expert on themselves and given the right environment, will find their own path through their problems. I do not judge but support and help the client explore their options and way forward towards a happier outcome. I am Gay Affirmative.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Diploma in Person-Centred counselling and am experienced in delivering art and play therapy to younger clients. I am a qualified couples counsellor and also able to offer family therapy. Recently I have undertaken some "Focusing" training.
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.
