About me

In line with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) ethical framework, I offer a safe and confidential environment for clients to explore the things they feel are impacting their lives.

Training, qualifications & experience

I studied the NCFE Level 1-3 qualifications at Guildford College. I decided to take the foundation degree and studied the Clarkson modality at the University of Greenwich.

During my training I had clinical placements at the Veterans Mental Health Transition, Intervention and Liaison Service at St Pancras Hospital; and with North Kent Mind in Gravesend and Medway.

I undertake regular continued professional development (CPD) to help me improve and learn more around specific areas of mental health or the communities it may effect.

I offer face to face sessions, and online sessions over Skype or Zoom.

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.
