About me

Thank you for taking the time to view my profile.  I’m Michelle and I am a Counsellor and an EMDR Therapist and I'm very keen to work to support you to achieve the best possible outcome for you.

I will work to support you to make sense of what you are going through?  Perhaps you are feeling overwhelmed by past events which are causing you to feel stuck in a negative or self-critical thought pattern.  Or perhaps you are worrying about things in the future and are feeling anxious, panicked, stressed or unable to focus and lack motivation?  You may have experienced an emotionally difficult or traumatic event which has left you experiencing distressing symptoms of anxiety, panic, overwhelm and/or experiencing flashbacks. 

You may be wondering how I can help or you might be feeling nervous about starting the journey towards positive change. I'm here to fully support you with this and will guide you and listen to you.  My approach to counselling and EMDR Therapy is to put you at the heart and centre of the process and to accept you without any judgement.  I have successfully supported many adults and helped to alleviate their distressing symptoms,  improve focus, motivation, self esteem and confidence enabling positive longer term change which has helped them to feel much more like their true selves again.

I work face to face in a Therapy Room setting, remotely online or via the telephone and aim to work whichever way feels most comfortable for you.  You have already taken the first step towards making positive change by being here, so please do reach out to me for support using the contact details shown above.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

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).
