What to expect
In my initial meeting we will explore needs and concerns. You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. In this initial consultation we will have the chance to get each other and, by the end, we will decide if it is appropriate to work together. If we do decide to work together my suggestion is to work for 6 sessions with a session to review and to explore if it is necessary to continue. This is of course all explored in the safety of a confidential space.
Key words used in my counselling practice– Emphatic- Understanding- Supportive- Challenging, and most of all ethical and confidential. In the years I have worked with people I have learned great strategies and can offer you many different tips. You will then have the choice and opportunity to use them. I take my work seriously however in the time we work together there will be opportunity to also smile.

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.
