Taking your first step into counselling can be daunting - for whatever has brought you here today, welcome.
I believe whole-heartedly that you are the expert in yourself, and that by holding a caring and confidential space we can safely explore the struggles you may be facing.
I work from a non-judgmental base that values and respects whatever you need to bring, mindful of the world we live in and the impacts this might have at the intersections of our identities. Together, we can work to process whatever may be blocking your way.
I offer a free initial 20 minute consultation over the phone or online for us to get a sense of how it might be to work together.
Send me a message if you think this might be right for you. All enquiries are usually answered within 48 hours.
Training, qualifications & experience
I'm a qualified counsellor, trained in working relationally and integratively. What this means is that I work collaboratively with you, drawing on several different modalities, to create the kind of therapeutic relationship that might best support you.
I have experience of working with people bringing a broad range of issues to counselling, including depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, abuse, race, identity, gender and sexuality. I currently work within an LGBTQ+ charity.
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.
