Cognitive Behavioral Therapy sometimes gets a bad press - it's a 'system', it's 'just a process you are put through' etc. My work is very different from that stereotype - it will be unique to you and your situation because it is underpinned by my person-centred approach. I may also draw on a range of therapeutic models, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Person-Centred Therapy and Positive Psychology when appropriate or use creative therapies such as Sand Tray work and Small World therapy. I also offer Walk and Talk therapy as both my rooms are located very close to lovely areas to walk.
I have extensive experience of working with young people aged 11 - 18, as well as working with adults. I have recently started working with relationship issues and am qualified and happy to work with couples.

I am also a qualified counselling supervisor.

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)
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.
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.
