Client Feedback:

1 year drug free today. I would just like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of the understanding you have given me over the past months. I will appreciate you forever.

'Thank you for such productive sessions which have been so beneficial in amending my outlook. I credit you with really challenging and helping to change my thought process at a time when I felt that it was close to impossible.'

'I cannot thank you enough, I feel like I have really been heard and understood, every single word of it, and cannot believe what we have covered with just a few sessions.'

'You have helped to allow me to be me, and to be at Peace'

'It is like seeing a reflection of myself in the mirror and seeing the bits I need to work on.'

'I have carried this baggage around with me for thirty years, I have let go of it now and wish that I had come for counselling year's ago.'

'I used to define myself as suffering from panic and would label myself. I have now learnt to listen to myself and have put coping strategies in place.'

'In my sessions I have felt safe to explore the things that are most important to me and have felt heard which has helped me to a greater understanding of my situation.' Although I have had only four sessions, it has been invaluable to me.'

'The sessions have been life changing.'

Member organisations

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.

Further information

Counselling in a unique experience and I aim to provide the right conditions in order for client's to explore their issues. It does require commitment from the client. Counselling is a confidential experience unless there are any safeguarding concerns, this is done in a safe environment without judgement. For some clients only a few sessions may be required and for others they may require more of a long term approach.

Please feel free to contact me with any enquiries that you may have.
