Finding a counsellor that you feel you can connect with and talk to about personal feelings and experiences may feel daunting with so many to choose from. I would like to invite you to speak to a few and see how you feel with each person. I am here to listen to you and any questions you may have regarding finding the therapist for you and your concerns, while giving us the opportunity to see if you feel comfortable for us to work together.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a Qualified Counsellor and Registered member of the BACP, having gained much of my experience volunteering within an NHS Brain Injury Rehabilitation Hospital, working with Family Centre's, while also providing counselling to people looking for counselling privately. Working with people to explore their life experiences, including struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, loss, bereavement and family relationship dynamics. As your journey evolves, I will be there to help you find understanding and to cope with your feelings and emotions.
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.

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.
