About me

Counselling provides a safe and confidential space for you to talk to a trained professional about your issues and concerns, which can help to develop a better understanding of yourself, others, and the wider world. 

A counsellor will not give you their opinions or advice or prescribe medication. They will help you find your own solutions – whether that’s making effective changes in your life or finding ways of coping with your problems. It may be about cultivating an attitude of acceptance to what you cannot change in your life – or focussing upon what you can.

I aim to offer a compassionate, understanding, and non-judgmental space for you to explore your concerns, which may be related to your relationships, your childhood, your feelings, emotions or thoughts, your behaviour, past and present life events, or situations you find difficult.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a CPCAB qualified counsellor (Level 5 Psychotherapeutic counselling) with over 14 years of experience working with mental health and illness within the charitable sector.

I undertake regular clinical supervision and professional development to ensure that my knowledge and practice is safe, ethical and encompassing the latest theoretical knowledge and understanding within the counselling profession.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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.
