MBACP - Counselling

About me

Thank you for visiting my profile. I provide therapy for individuals and couples in a private and confidential setting in which we can explore your thoughts and feelings at a pace that suits you. In doing so we can work toward positive change.

I have a vast experience in working with clients from differing backgrounds and cultures, presenting with a wide array of issues including (but not limited to) anger counselling, counselling for depression, for anxiety, counselling for suicidal feelings, for bereavement and loss, loneliness, difficulty with relationships, eating disorders, O.C.D and many other issues.

For couples and individuals seeking therapy, I offer both face to face and video call counselling which may be useful for those unable to attend physically.

During the first session, we will discuss the issues that have led you to counselling and also discuss your expectations of the process (I will take some notes during this session). I will explain the process and how I work and based upon this session, you can decide if you feel comfortable to move forward. I strongly believe the relationship between client and therapist is key to building an environment of trust in which we can explore the things that you are finding difficult.

Member organisations

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.

Further information

As well as having volunteered within a charity setting, I have also been an honorary psychotherapist within the NHS in Essex, have taught psychodynamic counselling and worked in secure mental health units within the NHS.

I believe counselling is an effective way to make positive changes, an environment in which you are respected and not judged.

I aim to facilitate a space in which we can, at your own pace, work toward positive change towards a you which feels better about you!
