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.

Areas of counselling I deal with
I have early morning appointments, some evening appointments and appointments available on a Saturday, as well as regular week day slots open.
Some of the issues I have worked with include...
- a wide range of sexual difficulties for men and women, such as erectile problems and loss of desire
- relationship issues, such as infidelity, infertility, IVF, cultural differences, commitment and communication problems.
- Anxiety and depression
- Family issues around parenting, blended families, illness and work stress
- Violence, loss, ageing and anger issues.
I have worked with many same-sex couples, gay, lesbian and bisexual clients. A lot of my clients are also in cross-cultural relationships.
I have a particular interest in divorce and separation.
