About me

Everyone has a story - unique to you! Everyday you are writing your story but not often do we take the time to read back our story or involve an external service to help us edit what we don't want to carry into our future. I in Clear Vision Counselling would like to support you in a safe space to tell your story - to help you to understand your story and to allow you to heal in your story.  I work as an integrative counsellor as it allows you to tell your unique story - and focus on your journey. Not everyone needs to hear your hidden and untold story but I will offer you that held, safe, confidential space to tell the parts of your story that you are ready to share. You will not regret it. #whatsyourstory?

Member organisations

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.
