Counsellor Psychotherapist Reg.MBACP (Accred) BSc (Hons)

About me

I work in Ealing and surrounding areas of W5. I work with a Person-Centred approach, placing great significance on our therapist/client relationship as the heart to providing you therapeutic benefit. I view you as your own best authority on your life and experience. I wish to provide you with the right conditions of acceptance and empathy whilst wishing you to receive me as genuine with no façade. I offer confidential therapy to individuals covering a wide range of issues, in both long and short term focused work.

My experience and special interests include addiction, self-harm, emotional distress, stress and anxiety, loss and bereavement, abuse, work or family issues, anger management and personal growth. I encourage positive change, and self-respect. As an Accredited and Registered member of the British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists, I subscribe to its Ethical Framework for Good Practice.

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.
