I was born, brought up and trained in UK but spent around 20 years of my life living and working in developing countries and some of the time in Europe. I have mostly worked privately, as well as about 5 years for the NHS. I trained at the City University London for my Psychotherapy Degree.
I like working with people and have always worked in the caring profession in a caring role. I love my work.
I take part in sport and am passionate about about food- food being our medicine. I now live in UK permanently, with my husband, my son is grown up and has a business of his own.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been practising Psychotherapy and Counselling for nearly 18 years now, most of the time in UK and some of the time overseas. I trained at the City of London University and have a Masters Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy. My model is Psychodynamic/Integrative.
I am a trained nurse and have recently been trained in raw living foods for vitality and good health.
I am accredited with the BACP and have been for many years now. I am open to see all kinds of problems and refer to other specialists if necessary.
The first consultation is an exploratory one after which we decide if we wish to progress further as Counselling /Psychotherapy for some this can be quite a daunting prospect. It is important that we both feel we can work together for the benefit of the client.
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.
