I am a person centred counsellor, who offers confidential and empathic counselling in Hitchin, Hertfordshire.
I offer short and long term counselling to adults, teenagers and children, from 7yrs, in a safe, non-judgemental environment.
I offer both indoor and outdoor counselling sessions as well as telephone and online counselling.
I aim to help my clients achieve positive change in their lives by working together to facilitate change, even when words or feelings maybe difficult to express.
Training, qualifications & experience
I completed a diploma in Person Centred Counselling in 2009.
I have spent many years working with predominately primary aged children, I also have experience with teenagers and adults.
I have particular experience working with children and young people who have an Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), using social stories and playing to help them communicate their thoughts and feelings, while helping them to navigate life.
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.
