About me

I am a warm and open integrative counsellor who works in a private tranquil environment to ensure a safe place for clients to explore their feelings without fear of judgement.

I am a registered member of the BACP and as such adhere to the BACP Code of Ethics.

I am passionate about making counselling more accessible to everyone but especially to those who find fees a barrier to accessing counselling. Therefore I have a number of concessions available for those on low/no income. Please feel free to enquire about these.

I believe that our key workers in the emergency services are often troubled and do not always have access to adequate counselling services. For this reason individuals who work in these fields and also in medical care can receive reduced charges on their counselling sessions.

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.
