I am an integrative counsellor working from person-centred values, drawing on a number of ideas and models depending on the situation. I have worked with issues around self-identity, control, self-esteem, anxiety, broken relationships, grief, trauma, abuse, dealing with IBS, age-related health issues, low mood and severe depression.
My hope is to listen well and hold a non-judgemental space for you, to enable you to process and understand your situation, make wise choices and positive changes.
Training, qualifications & experience
Professional Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy, Consultancy PGDip, Genetics BSc Hons, Registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)
I volunteered for Cruse Bereavement Care delivering bereavement support for 18 months, having completed their specialist bereavement training. I have a wealth of experience of working with, listening to and helping people from many walks of life.
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.
