I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and believe firmly in providing an ethical and confidential counselling service. I am an experienced Health & Social Care practitioner specialising in mental health issues. I have experience working in primary care settings taking GP referrals from people with life and relationship difficulties causing issues such as depression, anxiety, panic and OCD (obsessive compulsion). I have also worked successfully with Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome and victims of crime and trauma. My work with loss and bereavement was gained through my experience of working within a hospice setting and the wider community supporting patients and their family and friends.
Alongside private practice, I also work in an NHS setting; I provide clinical supervision to registered health practitioners(NHS) and also to fellow counsellors and psychotherapists.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
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).
