Reg. BACP - BA (Hons) Counselling (Integrative)

About me

Coming to counselling for the first time can feel daunting, especially if you're not used to opening up about your feelings. We are often taught from a young age to push down how we truly feel and hide our difficult feelings from others. Life can also hand us cards that are hard to handle or process, for example, bereavement or sudden loss of work, and a supportive, non-judgemental and safe space is needed to work through it. Counselling allows opportunity, to rediscover how we can effectively harness our emotional and mental experiences and make better sense of life.

I help by providing a safe space to explore what is on your mind, taking a holistic approach. Working integratively means I understand not every modality or intervention suits every individual and so counselling is tailored in a way in which you would like to process things.

From personal experience, I know how daunting it can be to reach out for support and the anxieties of finding the right therapist. But, please be reassured you will be warmly welcomed.

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.
