Dip. Counselling MBACP (Registered) & Supervisor

About me

*I am now back working face to face with clients, remote therapy is still ongoing for those clients who wish to remain at home*

I am a fully qualified counsellor and a member of the BACP. I offer a bespoke counselling service, face to face in a secure, discreet and safe environment. The service is tailor-made to meet the individuals needs. Counselling is used as a talking therapy and/or solution focused. I trained as an integrative counsellor which means I can offer a variety of therapeutic approaches and methods to meet my clients needs.

Looking for a counsellor can seem daunting especially if you are feeling a whole range of emotions from 'having a bad day' to suicidal thoughts, from anxiety to depression or relationship issues. However you have taken the first step by looking through the Counselling Directory and realising you would like support.

My approach is collaborative, confidential and empathetic. You will find me to be supportive, non-judgemental and comfortable to be with.
By working collaboratively I aim to assist you in gaining a new perspective and a greater sense of self-awareness. Whilst this change takes place it becomes possible to explore options which may then enable you to make the changes you want to move forward.

Please check my website for more details.

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.
