British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

If you are feeling lost, uncertain or are struggling to find meaning in life you may be feeling disconnected from yourself or from others. This loss of contact with yourself, your needs, beliefs and values, may erode your trust in your ability to form meaningful relationships and attain personal goals.
A therapeutic relationship can offer the opportunity to find renewed belief in yourself and in others. It can help to provide self confidence, enabling clearer decision making and the ability to begin to live life in a more meaningful and satisfying way. Trust is absolutely essential in this type of relationship and I offer security, sensitivity, warmth and support enabling you to build trust.
I have trained in and practice the person centred approach. This is based on the theory and philosophy of Dr Carl Rogers. My approach is non directive and non-judgemental, My role is to walk beside you as we work together.
