Member organisations

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I provide cutting edge, research informed behavioural therapy for individuals who would like to manage their weight (gain or lose) to reach their ideal ,desired body. I apply behaviour-change models to help individuals identify the issues surrounding their weight gain/loss and to adopt healthy habits and maintain their behaviour change on a long term basis. I have a track record of helping children, families, and individual adults adopting healthy habits and achieving a healthy weight and the ideal body they always wanted.

I also help families and parents dealing with their children/teenagers and any family issues they might have. Through effective family interventions and tailor-made behavioural and psychotherapy approaches, I help parents re-build and/or strengthen their relationship with their child and enjoy their children.

Further, I help couples with separation/divorce complexities, child custody disputes, new parenting, infertility, infidelity, boundaries , financial imbalances and power dynamics.

Further information

I use an integrative approach as I like the possibilities that lie in combining the strengths of a range of theories and psychological therapies. Integrative counselling and psychotherapy has been proven effective in working with a wide range of life problems and diagnosis including (for example) stress, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, loss and bereavement, trauma,  immigration issues, identity problems, addictive behaviour (including substance misuse), couples problems, divorce and separation complexities, parenting and dealing with teenagers. I use the latest cutting edge Behavioural Change Models and various psychotherapy approaches such as: Solution-Focused, Brief Therapy, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Gestalt and Person-Centred, tailoring the therapy to adjust to the requirements of the individual client, as everyone has differing needs.

My practice is based on a relational approach and a collaborative way of working. I welcome questions and discussion of the process of your therapy at any time. You can expect a clear contract with me on the issues you choose to work with - I hope to support your increased freedom to make real choices in other areas of your life.
