I am an accredited registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (Accred. MBACP) and have an MA in Clinical Counselling and am a Certified Solution Focused Practitioner.
Life is often hard and can challenge us in many ways.
You may be feeling anxious, lack confidence, be suffering loss or experiencing other significant change in your life. As a fully trained and experienced Person Centred Counsellor I offer you the environment to explore difficult emotions, gain a greater understanding of self and begin the process of healing and inner growth. Within a safe space you will be able to focus on your strengths, skills and talents already at work in your life and how these can positively affect your future.
As an Integrative Counsellor I draw on a range of techniques to support each client on their unique journey.

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 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.
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.
