I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I work with adults and young people and can additionally offer family sessions.
I have ten years experience as a Counsellor. I aim to offer my clients a chance to explore their thoughts and feelings in a non-judgemental, safe and supportive environment. My Integrative approach allows me to draw from a range of theoretical models; this means I can apply appropriate techniques where necessary.
My many thousands of hours of client contact have addressed depression, low mood, mental and emotional disorders, loss, grief and bereavement, illness, gender identity, family issues, parenting, neglect, OCD, disordered eating, self harm, bullying, social issues, debt and substance misuse.
My experience, understanding and empathy are broad ranging. I can be approached on all presenting issues; we can discuss an onward referral if I am unable to help.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Diploma in Integrative Counselling and an FdA Degree in Integrative Counselling.
I have successfully worked with young people, adults and families as an employed and self employed counsellor. I am experienced in building relationships with young people. My work has been community, school and practice based.
I practice from my own beautiful premises in Hoxne and I have sufficient space to see families and groups. Please refer to my website if attending face to face sessions beyond lockdown. I also conduct online and telephone sessions.
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.
