Hello and welcome,
Taking the first steps into counselling can be a daunting and bewildering experience and I hope the following information about me helps you to make an informed decision.
I am an experienced and professionally trained Humanistic and Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist. My training allows me to adapt to individual client’s needs, working short or long term. I work in a quiet, private building with street parking.
Working in an ethical, sensitive and non- judgemental way I believe that every person is unique. Clients may feel overwhelmed through trauma or psychological issues such as stress, anxiety, abuse or bereavement and want to make changes within their lives. I offer the client the space and time to allow them to voice these issues in a confidential safe environment to enable them to move forward.
The first session is free and this is the time where we can meet and for me to get an understanding on how I can help you. This is also the time for you to ask any questions you may have about counselling so that you are able to make an informed decision.
I am at present working towards my Diploma in Eating Disorders.
I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP) and I abide by their code of ethics.
I hold a current DBS
Training, qualifications & experience
My qualifications include a BSc (Hons) in Counselling and Psychotherapist and I am a Humanistic and Integrative therapist working in modalities that include Person Centred, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis and Psychodynamic which allows to me tailor my work around clients own individual needs.
As well as my private work I have also worked within the NHS IAPT Service offering short term work as well as at a charity offering counselling to teenagers and adults who have been raped or are survivors of historical child abuse.
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.
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.
