I am a fully qualified and experienced integrative counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling (BACP). Sometimes life can be difficult and challenging and we need to speak to someone who is not a friend or family member. My aim is to provide a service to my clients that is based purely around their individual needs in a safe and therapeutic environment, uniquely set in the tranquil countryside with beautiful views. It can be hugely challenging to seek counselling and I believe the relationship to be of high importance, therefore I offer an initiall meeting at a reduced rate so that we can meet each other face to face to make sure that you have the best experience of support to meet your individual needs.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have extensive experience working in both primary and secondary education supporting all age groups with a wide range of issues including stress related issues, addiction, sexuality, abuse, self-harm, bereavement, OCD, anxiety and depression. I have experience working within social care and charity based organisations that support families and communities that are affected by bereavement, drugs, alcohol and other addictions.
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.
