I feel successful therapy is built on the foundation and quality of our therapeutic relationship. During counselling we will work together to build and reinforce that therapeutic relationship. I will work to earn your trust so that you feel secure enough to discuss your feelings, thoughts, issues or problems. Everything we talk about is confidential and I work honestly, respectfully and non-judgementally.
Although each therapeutic relationship is different and each client's experience unique, a successful therapeutic relationship can empower, enable and promote, in the client, self-confidence, self-esteem, self-motivation, self-belief. This can also increase self-awareness leading to understanding, opportunity and motivation to change through choice.
Counselling built on a successful therapeutic relationship will provide a safe, reassuring 'space' where you feel supported, enabling you to discuss and explore your thoughts and feelings, understand your experiences and promote your wellbeing.
I have been a carer for over 10 years so have significant experience relating to the challenges that can bring, both to the carer and the cared for.
I offer telephone and online therapy via a secure chat /messenger service so am able to work with those unable to leave home or struggling to do so, but also those who are used to communicating via messenger services and find it preferable to do so.
Issues I have experience of include personality disorders, behavioural problems, identity confusion, transition, relationship issues, anxiety, bullying, stress, self-esteem, self-confidence, anger issues, sadness and loss.
I have worked at various organisations and charities, working at different times in the NHS with people with learning disabilities, a charity for young people and adults with alcohol/ drugs issues, (11-24 year olds), a 6th Form college (16-19 years olds) an established University (18-21 years and mature students) and in my private practice.

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)
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
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.
