About me

Welcome to my profile. I am an experienced, fully qualified and accredited counsellor and psychotherapist, offering short-term and long-term counselling to adults, young people and children.

I aim to provide a safe and confidential environment where feelings can be explored, and the patterns of thinking and behaviour that contribute to one’s difficulties can begin to reveal themselves. This growing awareness gradually opens the possibility for change, leading to increased satisfaction and a greater sense of authority in one's life.

My practice is warm, welcoming and confidential. It is easily accessible. I am accredited with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and work within their Ethical Framework (see www.bacp.co.uk).

Further information can be found on my website.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
