MSc MBACP (Accred) UKRC - Individual and Couples Therapist

About me

I am an individual and couples therapist with an added expertise in psychosexual therapy. I have many years’ experience in numerous facets of individual and relationship therapy with people of varied sexual orientation and cultural backgrounds. I work with anxiety, depression, loss of confidence as well as all aspects of relationship difficulties.

No two people respond the same way to a problem and my work is tailored to the needs of my clients, either short term to address a specific issue, alleviate anxiety, the fallout from affairs, the distress of sexual problems, or longer-term to make sense of deep-rooted and long standing concerns for individuals and couples.

My aim is to help clients to understand the effect of early family and childhood experience and its influence on what is happening now. Change comes with understanding; understanding brings freedom and clarity and allows clients to make informed choices about their present and future.

I adhere to the BACP code of ethics and undertake regular supervision.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
