Registered Member MBACP (Accred)

About me

I work within the Humanistic framework and the core of my approach is Person Centred. This means that I will listen to you in an active, empathic, non-judgemental and congruent way so that we can develop a therapeutic alliance to address and resolve any difficulties you may be experiencing.  My training at the University of East London included CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and the Integrative Process Model (which referenced a Solution Focussed approach), and, working collaboratively, I may refer to these modalities and integrate aspects of them.

I am cognisant of early life experiences, family dynamics and parental relationships and recognise that these may be integral to your narrative. Nevertheless, the Humanistic, Person-Centred theory that the client is the best expert of themselves and that with empathy and the therapeutic alliance this expertise can be revealed and applied, remains the basis of my integrative approach.

I receive clinical supervision for all my counselling work which is implemented with reference to, and in accordance with, the BACP Ethical Framework.

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.
