We are all unique and how we cope and deal with the problems that life can throw at us are unique too. Finding the right person to help navigate the problems you are facing is arguably the most important part of counselling.
I can offer a safe space for you to explore and resolve your problems and together find a way to move forward. If you decide this is the right time for you to come to counselling I will work with you in a collaborative way that feels safe and effective for you.
Training, qualifications & experience
My training is in Pluralistic Therapy which in simple terms means 'Different people need different things at different times'. There are many therapeutic ways to help and work effectively with the problems experienced in life. Pluralism believes that you are your own expert and through working together you will be able to find the answers that are right for you. I qualified in 2012 and have worked as a counsellor in the third sector since.

Registered / Accredited
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.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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.
