I am primarily a person-centred counsellor but can also offer CBT techniques. I work with clients to form a therapeutic relationship to provide space for you to freely talk and explore the issues you may be experiencing. I provide a warm and safe environment to develop an understanding of yourself and facilitate any positive changes to enhance your well-being.
I have 4 years’ experience of working with clients within the mental health sector on a range of issues that was impacting their well-being. I work in a non-judgmental, empathetic way to facilitate the client to make sense of their issue.
I am a registered member of the BACP and I adhere to the Ethical Framework and Guidelines. As part of this I am required to attend regular monthly supervision to develop and maintain a good working standard for my client work.

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.
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.
