I am a qualified Counsellor/Psychotherapist and an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I work with individuals once a week on a one-to-one basis.
Each weekly session lasts for 50 minutes, at the same time, in the same place. This will be your space for as long as you wish to continue, I am happy to do both long term or short term work.
Our first meeting will be a consultation and will take up to 50 minutes and we will use this session to see how we feel about working together and so I can gain an understanding about what is happening in your life and what your goals for counselling are.
I use an approach which draws on many theories and concepts of counselling, so it suits you. We will be working together in a safe, confidential, non-judgmental space where we will explore the presenting problems you are facing.
Whatever you are going through you don’t have to do this alone, we can work towards your goals in therapy at your own pace.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a masters in therapeutic counselling and have been qualified since 2015, working with clients with a variety of issues since 2012. I also have a bachelors degree in psychology with counselling.
I also attend (CPD) Continuing Professional Development events to maintain and enhance my clinical knowledge and skills.
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.
