MBACP Registered and Accredited

About me

I am a BACP trained, registered and accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist working from my own practice in SA1, where I provide a confidential, accepting space to gently explore the challenges you may be facing.

Whether you need to untangle something unresolved from your past, or set fresh goals for the future, counselling is a valuable path to awareness and clarity. As an Integrative counsellor I am able to draw on a range of approaches to address your individual requirements.

Maybe you are anxious or depressed. Maybe you are experiencing the remnants of trauma or abuse. Maybe you just want to get to know yourself better and reach towards achieving a more fulfilling life. In each circumstance I offer a warm, non-judgemental space to address each issue.

I have spent a great deal of my practice in the area of loss. Whether it’s the loss of a loved one, your health, a relationship, of opportunities, even the loss of a sense of self. The changes loss can bring often leave us reeling and searching for direction. I have a broad experience of Trauma, Grief Therapy and Bereavement Counselling in an NHS setting and am equipped to sensitively help you move forward.

I am an accredited member of the BACP, also an accredited Action Learning Facilitator, Before training as a counsellor I worked in various creative fields, so if a more creative approach is what you would like then I am able to facilitate this too.

I have 7 years experience as an NHS practitioner.

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.
