I am a registered member of the BACP who is qualified and experienced to counsel you in a Person Centred way that places you, the client at the heart of the counselling journey. I shall listen empathically to all of the issues you may bring, without judgement or a wish to tell you how to live your life or give advice.
I shall be congruent with you, as I believe this is the very foundation for building trust within the counselling relationship and journey.
We are all individuals and should be valued as such. The counselling journey might be bumpy at times and produce unexpected twist and turns and lightbulb moments, this is all part of the process, a process I myself have taken and completely appreciate how hard it can be, but with the right understanding, professional support and safe space, the journey and process of counselling can be taken.

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).
