Training, qualifications & experience

  • BA Hons Counselling and Psychotherapy

I am a fully qualified, experienced psychotherapist/counsellor for a number of years and a member of the BACP. I have professional indemnity insurance. I am ICO registered. I have an up-to-date enhanced DBS certificate. This means I have met the highest standards required for training as a psychotherapist.

How I work.

My role as a psychotherapist is to work with you in developing a deeper understanding of yourself. Our sessions will offer you a confidential, non-judgmental space in which we explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours both conscious and unconscious. I am relationally-trained and my fundamental belief is that therapeutic change and your personal growth is enabled through the use of our therapeutic relationship.

Psychotherapy leads to significant and lasting beneficial changes in your life, it provides support in times of crisis and enables you to handle challenge, improve relationships and reduce feelings of depression and anxiety.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.
