Training, qualifications & experience
I am a BACP qualified counsellor. I have undertaken rigorous training at the New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling which is one of the country’s leading centres of learning within this field. My approach has helped many people to face and understand their experiences so that they have the tools to deal with the struggles they may encounter as they go through their lives.
I have worked with people through a range of services, from private clients to people who have been referred through the public sector and the charity sector. This includes long-term work through organisations such as the mental health charity Mind and Transform Counselling, as well as, collaborations with organisations such as Wandsworth Bereavement Service. I have worked with people from a wide range of backgrounds including those with complex needs. I have a lot of experience working with people on the autistic spectrum.
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.
