Training, qualifications & experience

Qualifications:

Teesside University - Foundation Degree in Counselling - Distinction 

SEG Awards ABC Level 3 Certificate in Counselling Skills

SEG Awards ABC Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills

Mental Health First Aider

Continuous professional development is always in progress for me. The most recent CPD I conducted focused on chemsex in adolescent gay men and GAMcare, being mindful of how young people experience addiction to gambling through popular gaming platforms. Using loot boxes can lead to young people becoming addicted and getting into debt.   

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

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.

Trusted Counselling Professional
​The BACP has registered me as a member (00950892). My DBS update subscription is active. My personal insurance is with Protectivity Insurance. I am an easy going, relatable and authentic person, i'm just like you. I'm a counsellor who believes in the value of the therapeutic relationship and the privilege of bearing witness to my clients' suffering and triumph. In their inherent ability to overcome obstacles, I have faith. In addition to imagery and therapeutic writing, I offer creative ways of working. My clinical experience is significant. Working with mild to severe mental health presentations, specifically managing crisis or high-risk situations, is my experience. With a diverse client base, my experience is non-linear, which strengthens my therapeutic relationships. I can work with presentations of self-harm, bereavement, depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, intention, and most psychological maladjustment.
