I am a psychoanalytic psychotherapist in private practice. I have over 19 years clinical experience which includes working at St Thomas' Hospital, London and as a counsellor working with students in two university college counselling services. I follow the BACP code of ethics and practice and I have experience in working with a wide range of ages and cultural and religious backgrounds.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a registered member of the BACP with over 24 years clinical experience. I have worked in the NHS and in University College Counselling Services. In 2007 after completing the one year introductory course at The Centre for Freudian Analysis & Research I decided to train on as a psychoanalyst and studied on at CFAR until 2012.
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.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
