The decision to see a counsellor can feel like a big step. You may be nervous about talking to someone you don't know, or embarrassed about having to ask for help. Admitting that things aren't working for you however takes courage and is a sign of strength - and I am hear to listen.
Talking problems through can help to put things into perspective. But however well intended your friends and family, it can sometimes be difficult to talk about difficult feelings with people that you know and love. I provide an opportunity for you to talk about what's troubling you knowing that you will be listened to honestly, without judgment and with empathy. Just saying out loud what's going on can be a relief. It can also help you to work out what's really bothering you and help you to explore ways to do something about it.
Please call, text or email me if you think that I can be of help.

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.

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).
