Counsellor (MBACP)

About me

Life can be amazing, but it can also come with its own set of challenges. Especially at the moment being in the middle of a pandemic, it's quite understandable to feel overwhelmed with many different emotions. Whatever our reason for going to counselling it's about having someone to listen; to our fears, anxieties, losses, our hopes, and joys.

I offer a warm, safe and confidential space for you to explore these difficulties at your own pace and support you in gaining a deeper understanding and connection to yourself.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a person-centred counsellor with a wide range of experience in other roles from working with young people in a college setting to working in an organisation supporting women. I have over 10 years of experience caring and supporting others, from numerous roles. I have an interest in perinatal mental health, domestic abuse and anxiety and depression.

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.
