I am an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist who supports individuals with a range of difficulties. The Therapy sessions I provide combine the use of three different therapeutic approaches, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Person-centred and Attachment. Therapy is led by yourself and I guide you through the sessions to support you in achieving your required goals.
I offer counselling sessions within an office, over the phone/online and on a walk and talk basis. I hope that this variety of options enables many people wanting to engage in counselling the opportunity to do so.
Training, qualifications & experience
My career started within the education sector. From here I realised that counselling was the career route I wanted to go down as I have always been passionate about supporting others in times of need. Therefore I retrained as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist and since doing so have never looked back. I am now a fully qualified Psychotherapist with an MSc in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have gained a variety of experience in differing roles, from organisations, to colleges and private practice.
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.
