About me

I understand that life at times can feel challenging, and it can take only one thing to knock you off balance emotionally and mentally! Hello, my name is Davina and thank you for taking the time out to view my profile. I am the founder of Time in Counselling, and I am here to support your healing process to get you from where you are now, to where you want to be!

I have an ongoing interest in working with women from the BME community; specialising in childhood abuse, sexual abuse, trauma-related concerns and relationships difficulties.

As much as I believe that knowledge is important to help others. I also understand the transparency behind having first-hand experiences, as I believe that's where the true connection can be blossom. Working interculturally allows me to gain a deeper understanding of your subjective experiences and how it relates specifically to you, which enables an authentic holistic healing process to take place.

It's time to take off that 'superwomen mask', put your load down, remove all labels. It is time to set some time aside for you, time to take some Time In!

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.
