I am a fully qualified, Therapist (BA Hons). I am trained and employed by the charity Relate as a relationship counsellor. I also work as a therapist on Employment Assistant Programmes.
I think that life can change in an instance and it did for me. I discovered therapy later in life, after a professional disaster. I was a 45 year old father and husband, I owned a restaurant in London and I was making a good living. Then, I lost it all, everything, the restaurant, my house and this put great stress on my marriage. Overwhelmed, I went to see a therapist and he really helped me get through this painful time. He had lived and experienced life’s struggles and could understand how difficult it can be when life runs aground- suddenly. I hope that I can offer this bigger perspective as a therapist now.
“I felt you were straight-talking but also very sensitive to our very different personalities and really wanted to help us as much as individuals as well as a couple.”
“it played a valuable part in helping me with the decision and also be a bit better in being more honest with myself going forward”
“Thank you very much for your understanding and expertise over the past few months. We came to you as a last resort as we careered towards an inevitable separation - something we still want to avoid.
Your message is clear: We need to reach an accommodation to create an atmosphere in which both we and the children can thrive”

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

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).
