What is counselling?
Counselling offers the opportunity for you to explore whatever is going on for you with someone who listens carefully to you. It can be a space for self-reflection, exploration and self-development.
How I work ...
As your counsellor I will provide you with a safe, quiet space which is free from judgements and pre-conceptions, a place where you can talk freely and be heard. I will not give you advice or tell you what to do but I will be with you to help you on your personal journey as you explore and make your own decisions.
I work as an integrative, relational counsellor which means that I combine a range of different approaches in order to support you in a way which works best for you.
What happens next?
Please contact me by telephone or email if you have any questions or would like to arrange an initial session to give you the opportunity to meet me and get a sense of whether you feel counselling will be right for you at this time.
I am able to offer sessions in Yaxley, PE7.

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 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.
