Thank you for taking the time to view my profile.
If you feel ready to seek counselling, we will initially meet for a FREE 30 minute assessment to ensure you feel comfortable with me as your counsellor but also for me to get a little insight into you and your background.
Once this is completed and we both feel comfortable to proceed then we will meet consistently on a weekly basis for 50 minutes.
I am a qualified counsellor with an Integrative Counselling Diploma which means I studied the following different theories: Person Centred Counselling, Transactional Analysis and Gestalt.
If you wish to know more, please do get in touch.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified counsellor with a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (Integrative), which was awarded by the Counselling & Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body (CPCAB).
Certified coaching master.
I work with many different aspects in my clients and I have worked closely with child sexual abuse and rape victims.
I have worked with many issues in my Private Practice, anxiety, depression, low mood, loss of focus in life, low self esteem, no confidence, phobias and many more.
I also use my pet dog for animal assisted therapy.
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.
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.
