Hello and welcome to my profile.
I’m an Integrative Counsellor and Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I provide a safe and confidential space for clients to open up and my caring, compassionate nature means that together, we can explore the issues and struggles you are facing.
It may be that you don’t have a specific issue but that you’re feeling lost and want to talk things through with someone impartial and non-judgmental, to better understand your thoughts and feelings.
As an Integrative counsellor I offer an approach tailored to your needs, using different aspects from my training to help you understand your feelings, gain greater awareness and perspective and to support you to bring about some of the changes you want in your life.
Training, qualifications & experience
BA (Hons) Psychology, CPCAB Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling.
I'm a Registered member of the BACP which means I work according to their code of ethical and professional conduct. As part of this I receive regular clinical supervision. I also attend workshops and training as part of my continuing professional development to inform my practice.
I have worked for one of the UK’s leading mental health charities. During that time and within my private practise, I have experience of supporting clients with a wide range of issues including anxiety and panic attacks, depression, childhood abuse, work related stress, post-natal depression, bereavement and loss, loneliness, life stage changes, identity crisis and gender dysphoria.
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.
