About me

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 individual face to face sessions for young people (aged 11+) and adults in Yaxley, PE7.  I am also able to offer sessions via telephone and video call.

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.
