(MBACP) Counsellor/Supervisor

About me

I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor providing a safe, confidential, non-judgemental and supportive environment for my clients. It is important to me that my clients feel listened to and understood, enabling a secure professional relationship.

I believe that presenting issues can be a result of past experiences encouraging unwanted repeated behaviours, either consciously or unconsciously. Knowledge of ourselves promotes understanding and therefore acceptance of ourselves or our experiences. I can assist in exploring different coping mechanisms to contribute to the progress of personal growth.

I have experience of working with children, young people and adults.

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.
