I am a qualified BACP accredited counsellor/psychotherapist offering a non-judgemental and thoughtful space in which we can explore your experiences and life challenges together. My aim is to provide an opportunity for you to talk confidentially about your troubles, feelings and experiences and to have time to reflect on your situation. My approach is predominantly psychodynamic which means that if relevant we may explore how your experiences in the past might be influencing your present. This can help to clarify your present situation and offer a possible springboard for change if this is what you wish. I offer short or long term counselling depending on your needs and circumstances. We will start with an initial assessment session where we can discuss your needs. If you decide you would like to progress, sessions will be once a week at an agreed time and last for 50 minutes.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Masters degree in Contemporary Therapeutic Counselling from the University of Hertfordshire.
Additionally, I hold a qualification in Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy, a Level 1 Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and training in Brief Solution Focused Therapy.
I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and abide by the BACP's ethical framework for good practice in counselling and psychotherapy.
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.
