I am a Person Centred / Humanistic counsellor with more than ten years NHS and private experience offering individual / couple therapy and clinical supervision.
I worked for Psychological Services in an NHS Mental Health Trust. This was in a managerial role in the IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) Team. This post primarily involved managing / supervising a wide and diverse team of counsellors and psychologists across all modalities, and offering largely community based services to the local population. This work also included providing long and short term therapy across a culturally diverse population, who presented with a range of difficulties from here and now issues to more complex issues of the self.
In my private practice I offer long and short term therapy and have many years experience of working with clients presenting with issues related to identity, bereavement and relationship difficulties, etc, as well as offering clinical supervision.

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.
