Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified counsellor, I qualified in 2016. The degree course was mainly person centred. But covered a variety of different modules of counselling. I have experience working for the NHS, in various settings. I have worked with mentally ill clients on psychiatric wards. Also, CAMHS with young adults and children with a variety of problems. I have helped bereaved clients who are in difficulty, and found it hard to move on. My area of counselling has been very varied with clients of physical, sexual, emotional abuse, rape, low self esteem, low self-confidence, family issues, relationship problems,childhood bullying, learning difficulties. I find counselling very rewarding, helping others who are in dire need of help and support. And to generally be there for them. If I am unable to help someone, then I would signpost them on to another organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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).
