I am a dedicated Counsellor and Supervisor with a background in Person Centred Counselling, CBT, Art, Brief Therapies, Trauma Therapy, Bereavement, Drugs and Alcohol.
With more than ten years experience as a generic Counsellor and eighteen years experience as a Registered General Nurse, I utilise strong skills in communication to establish individual needs and to prepare and deliver appropriate treatment and therapy plans accordingly.
I work in a safe, confidential environment, respecting clients, giving them space to talk and treating them in a non - judgemental way.

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.

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.
