BACP Accred therapist, Clinical Supervisor

About me

I am a professionally qualified counsellor with experience in working with a range of issues including depression and anxiety, working with anger issues, social anxiety, panic disorder, low self-esteem, low self-confidence.  Supporting both adults and children through the medium of  Sandplay to provide a safe medium to express their feelings and emotions in a constructive way.

I have worked with couples who have experienced relationship problems perhaps including emotional and physical abuse.  Reviewing and challenging unresolved childhood issues, which can help clients to come to terms with painful memories. This is all provided within a safe and confidential environment. My goal is to create a place where you feel you can build trust which will allow you to start exploring difficult and perhaps unwanted feelings in your life. without the fear of judgement or criticism.

Helping you to improve your awareness of yourself. By engaging in counselling, we can work together to develop various tools and psychological mindfulness. Recently I  trained as a stalking support advocate. I am a member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and I adhere to their code of ethics and framework for good practice, I am in regular supervision and follow an ongoing programme of continuing professional development

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
