Whether you’ve had counselling before or this is your first time, finding the right support for you can be an intimidating process. I believe that successful therapy is about finding a counsellor you get along with and can feel safe opening up to. This is why I offer a free 30-minute consultation to help you decide if you’d like to work with me.
What to expect
The counselling that I offer is person centred. This is a humanistic approach based on the belief that you know what is best for you. My role as a counsellor is to provide a confidential and non-judgmental environment for you to explore your issues and experiences at your own pace. From here we can work together to help you process and reflect upon the things that have brought you here.
My qualifications and experience
I have an MSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy and I also work as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist in the voluntary sector with male and female survivors of sexual violence. This work has meant I’ve come into contact with a number of different issues such as; loss, anxiety, depression, personality disorders, sex problems, anger, and more.
Get in touch to book in for a consultation, or for any queries.
Training, qualifications & experience
MSc Counselling and Psychotherapy
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
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.
