About me

Everyone faces challenges in life and we all deal with them differently. One option is to choose counselling, which has worked for me and many others and can work for you. It is your time to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours and find the best way to tackle your obstacles and as your counsellor I can work with you in an approach that best suits you. It’s important to choose the right counsellor so I will endeavour to be as transparent as possible in how my I can help you.

Your first session will include an assessment whereby I can gain more information about you, your life and how counselling can help you to get to where you want to be. If we agree my service can help you, I can then offer short to long term counselling, and have found it can be helpful to regularly review progress as the counselling continues.

I’ve successfully worked with children and adults of all ages, tackling a range of issues that we either face as part of life or due to unfortunate circumstances. My experience spans across private, public and not for profit sectors for organisations like Mid Kent Mind, Samaritans and NHS.

Member organisations

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.
