I provide counselling to adults from all walks of life. Counselling provides a safe space to talk openly with a trusted individual who will not judge you, it is not advice it is an environment for you to explore what is happening for you.
The therapy can be short so you can focus on a something specific you want to look at, or open ended and reviewed regularly. We will have an initial appointment to see each other and how we can work together.
I am a member of the BACP and work to their ethical framework and professional standards.
Training, qualifications & experience
My counselling training started with an introduction course and found it so interesting and rewarding that I continued to study and achieved a Certificate in Counselling, Diploma in Counselling and Diploma in Psychotherapeutics.
As part of my membership for the BACP I attend ongoing training and professional development in including self harm, working with dreams and mindfulness.
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

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.
