Are you struggling at the moment, and it feels that you're the only one having a tough time? Or are you recognising that you want to do things differently, but don't know what that might be, or where to start?
I work with both individuals and couples who would like to make changes to their lives and relationships, so if you'd like to start working out how to move towards a different future, one where you can be in control of your choices, then please get in touch to explore how talking therapy may be of benefit, for example, helping you to untangle your feelings, to explore the past and how it might be impacting on the present, talking through different options, or simply listening while you work out what's next for you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an integrative counsellor, so I draw on a range of approaches (eg CBT, psychodynamic, person centred, transactional analysis) to ensure that our work together is tailored to you and your circumstances, whether that's as an individual or as part of relationship counselling. I also have experience working with those with a clinical diagnosis, and who want to look at different ways of managing their mental health.
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.
