MA, MBACP (Accred) Counselling & Supervision

About me

I am a compassionate and non-judgemental person-centred counsellor experienced in working with people with anxiety and depression, bereavement and loss, abuse, relationship issues, identity and sexuality.

I will provide you with a safe and empathic space where we can explore your anxieties, feelings and concerns together at your own pace.

I believe by processing your emotions and worries can lead to you gaining personal insights and a greater understanding of yourself and your life experiences or situations.

By untangling these uncertainties can then give you a clearer view of your experiences and support you with steps towards feeling less anxious and more in control of life decisions.

I have worked in a diversity of counselling settings including public services mental health and co-facilitating and clinical supervision in an educational setting.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.
