BSc Hons, MBACP Integrative counsellor & relationship therapist

About me

I am a qualified BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) registered counsellor, for individuals, couples, families and children.

I am committed to providing counselling in a supportive, non-judgemental, respectful environment. Creating a safe space to explore whatever issues you may be experiencing or have experienced. You will be met with a sensitive, empathic and curious approach to enable you to gain a deeper understanding of your personal situation.

Training, qualifications & experience

I adopt an Integrative approach to counselling, which means I draw upon several theoretical approaches and models. These include Systemic, Psychodynamic, Transactional Analysis (TA), Gestalt, Existentialism and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

Relevant qualifications include:

  • Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling – BACP Accredited : Iron Mill College
  • Advanced Certificate in Systemic Practice with Families and Couples: Institute of Family Therapy
  • Transactional Analysis 101
  • Therapeutic Counselling Skills for Children: The Centre for Child Mental Health
  • University Advanced Diploma in Couple Counselling: University of Hull
  • Certificate in Youth Work: Level 2
  • BSc Psychology Honours 2.1 University of Plymouth  - BPS Accredited

My specialism is couple and relationship therapy and I have over fourteen years experience working for Relate.  The relationship you have with yourself, with your partner or with your family are vital to one’s emotional health and wellbeing. Relationships past and present can impact what we think and how we feel about ourselves and the patterns we find ourselves in and the choices we make. Exploring the relational patterns you find yourself in can enable you to gain more insight, see things from a different perspective and enhance the quality of the relationship.

Member organisations

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.
