Therapeutic Counsellor MNCS(Snr Accred)

About me

I offer a quiet space to explore the issues that are troubling you at a pace that suits you. I will work with you to identify and tackle the source of unrest or distress and together we will find ways to navigate through that distress and bring more control and personal power to your life.

So why choose counselling? It is now widely recognised that 'talking therapies' are an effective and helpful way to deal with many of the issues which trouble us throughout our life. Life can often leave us feeling overwhelmed and out of control leaving a sense of powerlessness, which left, can lead to more serious ill health such as clinical depression for example.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been in practice as a Person Centred therapist since 2006. My practice has evolved over that time however my core belief remains - we are all striving to grow, to feel well, and fulfilled. Counselling is a recognised approach to looking through our life events or perhaps repeated unhelpful patterns and uncovering the sticking points or the reasons for unhappiness.

My experience as a therapist has covered all areas of life from birth to death and all the challenges, life brings, in between. I have worked with adults experiencing many aspects of distress as well as struggles adjusting to changes in life due to ageing, relationship difficulties and breakdown, trauma, loss and bereavement, stress and anxiety as well as adjusting to living with a life limiting diagnosis.

I am a member of the National Counselling Society MNCS (Snr Accred) and the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy MBACP.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

NCS

National Counselling Society (NCS)

The National Counselling Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
