Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor MBACP /EDBS

About me

As a practitioner, it is my aim to develop a safe, respectful and confidential environment for you to explore your difficulties. I have gained my experience through working for the NHS within a GP Surgery. This has enabled me to learn a huge amount about us human beings. I have also spent time as a volunteer for MIND the mental health charity as well as a number of youth organisations.

I understand that there may be times when the world feels like a lonely place to be, as we struggle to work out difficulties. I can be with you to help you discover a way forward to a happier life.

Just for further peace of mind, I hold an enhanced DBS background check which allows me to work safely with children and vulnerable adults.

I look forward to hearing from you either by email or telephone to discuss any further information you may require.

Kind regards

Michelle

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
