I have 25 years experience in relationship counselling with couples, individuals, young people and families. I am a qualified psychosexual therapist and I am trained to work with compulsive sexual behaviour. I work with the traumas that are often the cause of some of the symptoms displayed in adult behaviour.
I offer a complete service in relationship counselling. I am an accredited member of the BACP and I abide by its ethical guidelines.
I see clients in a private location which is safe and secure. I also offer supervision.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am Relate trained with a certificate in Marital and Couple Counselling and I have a Diploma in Psycho Sexual Therapy. I have additional training/qualifications for working with young people/children and families and I am trained to work with compulsive sexual behaviour.
I have trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) which enables me to work directly with client trauma.
I also have a certificate in supervision from Relate.
I have been counselling for over 25 years and I have had a private practice for 18 years.
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.
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.
