I provide counselling therapy to adults both face to face and via zoom.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a registered member of the bacp (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and adhere to their code of ethical conduct
I spent the first half of my career within the corporate/agency world and after a decade I realised that I wasn't getting much out of my job. I enjoyed the people and the environment, however, something was lacking from what I was doing.
I trained at the Minster Centre, one of the leading Psychotherapy schools in the UK, as an Integrative Counsellor and this means that I use several different approaches in my practice that I adjust depending upon how each client responds.
As part of my studies, I covered Existential, Psychodynamic, Person-Centred, Body Psychotherapy together with a Relational approach with diversity at its core. In laymen's terms, it means that I've covered a broad range of different theoretical approaches combined with an understanding of what make's us all different.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Free initial online session
Individual fees are £80 per 50-minute session.
Looking into the world of counselling can be very confusing. What am I looking for? What's the difference between Counsellors? What's expected of me in Counselling?
Probably the most common question is ‘will I like my counsellor?’
This is why I'm offering a Free 20-minute appointment to allow you to meet me, get a feel to whether you think that we can work together and ask me any questions you might have.
