I am a qualified Humanistic Counsellor, and my approach is empathic and non-judgemental. I offer a safe and confidential environment for my clients. Our past experiences can often impact the choices we make today. I believe that through gentle exploration of our issues/concerns we can start to make sense of why we feel, think and behave the way we do, with this knowledge we are then able to take positive steps to make the changes we want for the present and future.
Training, qualifications & experience
Level 3 in Counselling Skills
Foundation Degree in Humanistic Counselling based on Transactional Analysis.
My experience has been working with clients suffering with issues such as low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, loss and bereavement, abuse, addiction, sexual issues, marriage/relationship difficulties, and childhood-related problems.
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.
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.
