I initially began my journey into counselling volunteering as a bereavement counsellor at a local hospital working with clients in a person centred way to help them make sense of and process their loss. I stayed in this role for 6 years and would consider it my specialist area as I find it a very rewarding and enriching process. To build upon my counselling skills and experience I moved on to work in the NHS as a Solution Focused Brief Therapist - a role which I still do today. I have gained experience of working with a broad range of clients presenting with issues such as anxiety, depression, low mood, generalised anxiety disorder, anger management and many others not listed here.
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.
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.
