About me

Choosing to come to counselling is often the first step we take to try to make sense of difficult, painful and confusing experiences that we are currently feeling, or have carried with us from the past.

Feelings of depression, anxiety and sadness can feel overwhelming and isolating. Understanding the impact this has on your life and being able to focus on yourself- who you are, perhaps within your family, friendship or workplace relationships, can help you to deal with these experiences.

I provide a safe, respecting and confidential space, where you will be listened to and heard; where you can explore and unravel these feelings to understand why you feel as you do and perhaps become more accepting of yourself and see more clearly any choices or changes that you might have struggled with.

I will not judge or advise you, but I will support you to deal with whatever is troubling you.

Training, qualifications & experience

As a registered member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) I abide by their guidelines, and am committed to working safely, ethically and confidentially.

I have several years experience of working with a crisis charity, dealing with male and female survivors of sexual abuse and also with a counselling agency dealing with a range of issues, including depression and anxiety.

I work with the person you are, whether you are an adult, young person, male, female or transgender. I am also able to offer counselling to children and have DBS clearance.

I regularly attend courses and workshops as part of my commitment to professional development, and also to extend my knowledge of the widening variety of issues that are brought to counselling sessions.

Member organisations

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.

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).
