I am a qualified person-centred counsellor and psychotherapist. I see my role as accompanying you on a journey of self development. I provide a warm, safe and accepting environment, in which you can explore some difficult memories and painful feelings that maybe are making life challenging at this time.
I can offer support if you are struggling with stress, anxiety, depression, grief or simply wish to understand yourself better.
Whilst specialising in teenage and adolescent counselling I offer therapy to all ages. I offer both short and long term counselling.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a diploma in Humanistic Person Centred Counselling having studied at Colchester Institute and I have 10 years of experience.
I am a member of the BACP, and I am bound by their ethics and policies.
I currently also work as a school counsellor and am a qualified Thrive Practitioner working with secondary school aged children.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
