My Experiences

I have been a volunteer counsellor with SEREN. An organisation helping adults who have been abused as children. I have experience with a charity called "Journeys"  which help people with mental health problems. I have worked for the NHS on various campuses, general, mental health and CAMHS helping people with a varied range of problems. I have worked in a school environment with children with emotional/behavioural problems. I have experience working in MIND whilst working for an agency, helping clients with anxiety, depression, loneliness and isolation etc. I have been involved with 'People First' counselling clients with learning difficulties,

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.

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.
