How often do we get really listened to? It can take courage to say what we need especially when we may not know what our needs are. I am an experienced counsellor and aim to provide an accepting, supportive, confidential and safe space to enable discussion about any issues that are causing concern. I am very experienced in working with anxiety and depression.
I work both short term and long term depending on the needs of my client and I value and respect our counselling relationship, which is so important in the success of therapy. I am flexible in the way I shape and tailor the sessions around each client's needs as much as possible, as everybody is an individual.
I am an accredited and registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and a qualified supervisor. I abide by the BACP Code of Ethics. I have also had over 10 years of experience working in NHS settings.

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.
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.
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.
