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)
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
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.
