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 work flexible hours to fit in with your lifestyle.
Having received counselling myself over 20 years ago, it was life changing for me, I had many issues and found myself going from one bad relationship to the next and I was diagnosed with depression, I had hit rock bottom and that is when my own journey to recovery began. I am so thankful that I went to counselling ! Thereafter I had a passion for helping others and got involved in doing charity work as a mentor for Bolton Lads and Girls Club and also donating my time to help troubled families, working for the charity Home-Start UK. Tragically, I then lost my beloved daughter in an accident and my life once more hit rock bottom, it was one of the worse times of my life and I was diagnosed with PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) so back to counselling I went and I also found much healing, not only through my counselling but also through having Reiki and practising Mindfulness. I knew the day after I had lost my daughter that I was going to train to become a counsellor, I want to help others and I can empathise and understand that life is not always easy.
