Are you feeling worried, anxious don't know where to turn?
Are you looking for a counsellor but not sure if its right for you? To help you make up your mind I offer a free 30 minute initial consultation. This way we can meet, talk about what you need and you can decide if you want to go forward with the counselling.
Hi my name is Kay welcome to my page.
We all feel overwhelmed at times but when it becomes too much to cope with it helps to have a safe and private place to go to help unravel what is going on and find a way forward. Counselling can help you do this. I offer a personal confidential setting where the time is just for you.
I am a qualified counsellor registered with the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapist. I have a private practice offering a comfortable safe and confidential consulting room for private sessions. I work in an integrative way using both psycho dynamic, person centred models, CBT and Mindfulness.
Thank you for visiting my profile.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been running Turning Point Counselling for 5 years. I believe our mental health is every bit as important as our physical health. In fact the two go together. My aim is to support you through difficult times in a non judgemental safe environment and help you to move forward.
My training was with CPCAB gaining a diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am a registered member of BACP.
I have been a counsellor for 'MIND' working with clients with a range of issues including depression, anxiety, stress, bereavement, debt problems, relationships.
I have also worked with clients with alcoholism and addiction problems while working for ADAS, (Alcohol and Addiction Service). I have worked with children for 20 years as a Learning Mentor supporting children and their families on a range of issues including housing, bereavement, family breakdown, special educational needs.
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.
