MBACP (Accred) Dip Therapeutic Counselling

About me

I have been working as a Counsellor for over ten years. I have worked with individuals from various cultures and backgrounds.

I enjoy helping people identify and achieve their personal goals by coping with the issues that are causing them distress, anxiety, and stress.

I take great pride in the progress and success of my clients, and look forward to helping you! Whatever your concerns may be, working together we will aim to ultimately overcome any difficulties you are experiencing.

I will seek to enable you to make the changes you want within your life or simply work with you to explore your thoughts and feelings in more depth.

My training is integrative which means that I draw on knowledge of different therapeutic approaches to find ways of helping each person.

I offer a safe and confidential environment where you will be able to speak and to be listened to.

I also offer an initial free telephone consultation session; this is a good way of seeing how we might work together.

Concessions are available for Online/Telephone counselling during the Covid-19 period.

Appointment times are flexible, both daytime and evenings.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
