About me

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor. I work with people experiencing a range of difficulties including: Effects of Trauma, Anxiety, Depression, Bereavement, Relationships, Addiction and other challenges that life presents.  I can also work with you in relation to your personal development and personal growth. Through counselling you can gain insight into your problems, difficulties and challenges; counselling can supprt you to find your way forward and a greater understanding of yourself.

I offer you a safe and confidential counselling service.

I work with you in the 'here and now', whilst recognising the influence of past experience on the present.

I offer Counselling Supervision to both qualified and student counsellors.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked with people experiencing complex difficulties since 1989. I now work as a Counsellor and Supervisor; I previously worked as a support worker/practitioner, as a senior manager in service delivery and service development; developing and establishing services to individuals and groups.

I am a qualified counsellor, (Diploma in Counselling), currently employed as a counsellor within an organisation where I also support student counsellors on placement.  I have an established private practice, providing Counselling and Counselling Supervision.

My counselling training was primarily Person Centred, though my practice is eclectic being influenced by other models/theories of counselling, allowing me to offer a range of approaches.

I am a qualified counselling supervisor, (COSCA Counselling Supervision Certificate).

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.
