In a private, comfortable setting I can help you deal with the struggles which are keeping you in a place you don't want to be. Whether it is depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, bereavement, loss, eating disorders, relationships or work I can aid you to gain new insights and a fresh perspective. I strongly believe in the client's ability to change and heal using every crisis as an opportunity to reach your potential. It is important that you work with a therapist who has been ethically trained with the right blend of experience, respect and theoretical understanding. I am an integrative therapist tailoring my approach to your individual needs enabling us to address your presenting issues with the appropriate therapy.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Masters in Education and Psychotherapy and later trained at UWE as a counselling therapist leading to BACP accreditation. I also completed a course in family therapy at UWE which is invaluable to my client work. I have worked as a counsellor for four years in a local charity organisation and currently work within an educational setting as a counsellor for young people.
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.
Accredited register membership
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.
