I am an accredited member of the British Association for Psychotherapists and Counsellors with over 10 years of experience of working with both adults and young people. At times in our lives we can feel distressed, confused, anxious and uncertain about our circumstances and it can help to talk with someone in confidence who is not emotionally involved. It may give us a different perspective and enable us to move forward in life.
I feel that it is important to build a trusting relationship which can take time and patience. At the first session we would work together to explore your concerns and see if we can work together so that I can help you tp move forward with greater insight and self-awareness. I offer both open-ended counselling and short-term work.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.

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).
