Counselling (MBACP)

About me

I offer socially distanced and approved counselling through the pandemic or telephone work dependent on individual circumstances. At some points throughout life we may not register why we may feel a certain way, we may feel stressed, anxious or frustrated and not always know why. We struggle, we procrastinate, but we are left wondering what is the root cause of these issues? Counselling can be a fantastic way to open ourselves up to the possibility of moving forwards and making changes, at a pace we feel comfortable with.

I am an experienced and qualified counsellor working within the person-centred approach but able to comfortably integrate CBT practice and mindfulness where appropriate.

I have a range of experience and have worked in specialist areas such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, addiction, sexual abuse, bullying, anger and LGBTQ issues. I am most experienced in working with domestic abuse in all its forms, emotional, psychological, physical, financial, sexual, gaslighting and coercion and control. I am experienced in working with the impact of trauma.

I have worked with a wide range of people from all walks of life and I work uniquely with everyone, believing the most important gift we can give another is to truly listen and to truly want to understand.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Person Centred therapy and I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I have a BACP Certificate of Proficiency and I regularly attend training to continue my professional development.

I have worked within a number of specialist counselling organisations where I am very proud to have gained a great deal of experience.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
