My name is Grace and I have worked within the charity sector for the past six years and have experience of working with children, young people and adults, providing emotional health and wellbeing support, as well as counselling.
I wholeheartedly believe in the power of compassion, empathy and listening and therefore I am passionate about the impact which counselling can have. I feel privileged to be able to work alongside people throughout their counselling journey, and to be entrusted with their stories.
I offer an integrative counselling service for both adults and young people. I welcome enquiries for a compassionate and flexible approach, to best support you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I first started my journey working with children and young people who had experienced a bereavement. It was from there which I started my counselling training and continued working for a local charity, supporting children and young people with their emotional health and wellbeing. I have also worked with adults in a local counselling charity, adding to my experience in working with a variety of people, who face a range of challenges and adversities.
I have a BSc (hons) degree in Psychology, as well as a Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills, Level 3 Certificate in Counselling Studies and a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), which is a leading professional body for Counselling in the UK. Throughout my career I have also completed training in, Solution Focused Therapy, Coaching and Sexual Exploitation and Violence training.
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
Other areas of counselling I deal with
This list is not exhaustive and I believe in counselling being an option for anyone, regardless of situation or circumstance. I work from an integrative approach, meaning that we would work together in a way which best suits you and your reasons for coming to counselling.
I also strongly believe that counselling can be the ultimate form of self-care and therefore there does not need to be a specific reason to come to counselling.
