Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a Certificate and a PG Diploma in Person Centred Counselling and I am BACP Registered.
I currently work part-time as a counsellor within NHS as well as in an established growing private practice.
I have gained a wealth of experience working in a multicultural environment for many years. I have worked as a Substance Misuse Counsellor and with mental health dealing with many issues such as the unfortunately common anxiety and depression. More recently, I have focused my training and continuous development in mindfulness, trauma and attachment.
Over the years, my therapeutic work has developed into a deeper more meaningful practice as a Relational Integrative Counsellor/Psychotherapist using a range of psychological approaches.
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.

I am a Reiki Master and offer this healing modality to my work.
I am deeply committed to personal growth and have been "sensitive" all my life, therefore, if you are interested I also work holistically and intuitively. I offer a number of alternative/spiritual services to develop and encourage personal growth and empowerment (to be found on my website: breakingthroughtolove.net).
