BA (Hons), Registered MBACP (Accred) Pyschotherapist

About me

As a Psychotherapist/counsellor and accredited member of the BACP, I am trained and qualified in a range of therapeutic models, including Person-centred, solution focused therapy, motivational and CBT techniques.

I specialise in EMDR trauma therapy for PTSD, trauma, phobias and anxiety. 

I am passionate about the work that I do, my approach is open, honest and supportive. My aim is to help others develop clarity by listening and providing insight and support, enabling an increased understanding of their own thoughts and feelings.

I believe therapy is a unique opportunity for all to explore coping strategies, make choices about change and develop a deeper understanding. 

My aim is to always provide a warm friendly empathic space for people to talk about issues past and present that they may not normally be able to share with others.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an experienced therapist and have  worked  for several years in local GP surgeries, the General Hospital  providing support and individual therapy for clients with depression, anxiety, stress and bereavement.

I am an accredited member of the BACP and have a degree in counselling and psychotherapy and currently work at the 'Priory Hospital ' helping patients and clients with PTSD, stress, depression,trauma, anxiety, daily issues, anger, fear, relationship issues, childhood trauma, bullying etc.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

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.
