Life is a challenging process which can sometimes leave you feeling stuck or swamped with emotions and feelings that you may not understand. This can sometimes play out in repeating patterns with people close to you, or repeating patterns within your own thoughts and feelings. It maybe that you understand what those emotions and feelings are, but are not quite sure where it has come from.
Counselling is a great way of exploring and unpicking what it is that is going on for you. Through working together, we can explore thoughts, feelings and behaviours to understand how they relate to each other. Whilst also exploring how this impacts on you and the world around you.
I will help you do this by offering a compassionate and sensitive space free of judgement towards your experiences and your views.

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.
