The last year has prompted reflection for many of us about our lives, relationships and sadly, the loss of loved ones.
Counselling allows you to explore some of your innermost feelings and thoughts in a compassionate and empathic space, without judgement.
I trained in person-centred counselling, which means I work with my clients in a client-led and non-directive way. A counsellor is not there to give you the answers or tell you what to do, but to support you in exploring your feelings in more depth, to help you to find some clarity.
Training, qualifications & experience
I started my counselling journey whilst volunteering during my time at university between 2006-2009. During this time, I became a volunteer and sessional counsellor for Childline. Supporting young people at their most vulnerable points in their lives was a hugely valuable experience and it was this that led me to pursue a career in counselling.
I qualified as a counsellor in 2012 and I have since worked for Mind, for employee assistance programmes (EAP) and within my own private practice.
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.
