I am a BACP Registered and Accredited Counsellor. I have over 15 years experience and I work with clients on a short or long term basis, depending on what the client is seeking to achieve. I help clients to understand the cause of their problems and support them to find the best strategies and solutions for them. I work with clients to recognise how their past experiences may be affecting their current situation. I explore patterns of thoughts and behaviours which prevent life progress, moving past fears, anxieties and deprerssive feelings. You can expect a warm and non-judgemental space for you to start to make sense of your difficulties and find ways to develop lasting change.
I work online (zoom/ skype), telephone and face to face at Body and Mind Centre (www.bodyandmindcentre.co.uk).

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
