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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I charge £50.00 for a 50 minute counselling session.The initial consultation can take up to 90 minutes but is charged at the same price.
I studied at Worcester University for my degree in counselling and extended my training at Contemporary College of Therapeutic Studies in London to become an Integrative therapist enabling me to offer Hypnotherapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming. For most of my career I have worked in the education setting as a Pastoral and Safeguarding Manager, I have considerable experience of working with young people and the wider school community. I now offer private therapy sessions for individuals. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) which means that I abide by their code of conduct and ethical guidelines. I am also a member of The General Hypnotherapy Register and Counselling Directory.
As a Counselling Psychotherapist, my aim is to assist and enable you to make decisions you feel are right for improving your sense of personal wellbeing and alleviating distress.
