About me

Experienced person centred counsellor.

Experience working with Rape Crisis and Bereavement services, helping survivors and family members affected by sexual abuse (current/recent/historic) to relieve mental and physical distress, including low self-esteem, mental health issues, stress, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, guilt, shame, anger, loss, isolation and emotional and physical abuse.

I offer professional, confidential empathic counselling for individual clients and couples to explore and understand their own insights and perspectives of experiences and issues, enabling difficult feelings and subsequent behaviours to be resolved.

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.
