About me

Hi, I’m Megan (she/her) and I’m a person-centred counsellor offering remote sessions via videocall or telephone.

Whether this is your first-time exploring counselling, you’ve had counselling previously, or perhaps you’re a counsellor yourself, I understand that it can be difficult to know who will be the right fit for you. As a person-centred counsellor, the therapeutic relationship is crucial to the work we are able to do together, and so it’s important to me that you feel safe and able to connect. That’s why I offer a free 20-minute consultation so that you can get to know me a little better, find answers to your questions, and hopefully ease any fear or worry you may have about the unknown. I’m also more than happy to respond to any questions or queries via email. 

People seek out counselling for a whole host of reasons; from daily pressures and stress, long held pain or trauma, or simply to maintain good mental health and wellbeing. You may not yet be able to put your finger on, or fully articulate, what is going on for you at the moment, but simply know that you would like some more support. Whatever brought you here, I can offer you a safe and non-judgemental space to explore what’s important to you, at your pace.

I have previously published work which explores the experience of bereavement in adolescence, and the use of music to aid in the grieving process. 

Additional Information

For 2 years I provided counselling at a Women’s Centre in North Wales, which works to support and empower women from the local area. 

I have worked within the Education sector for a number of years now, and primarily in roles which seek to enable and enhance the progress and wellbeing of learners.

Member organisations

BACP
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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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.
