During this difficult time I am using Zoom to support my clients with online video sessions.
I have over 16 years experience working with a wide range of clients, including couples, children, young people and adults, offering warm, caring, counselling within an open, non-judgmental environment and will show clients self-help activities using Mindfulness and CBT, if applicable.
Sometimes it can be hard to talk to friends and family about what you are going through and how this makes you feel.
Counselling is a way of exploring your innermost thoughts and feelings in a safe, supportive, non-judgemental and confidential environment with a trained professional.
I offer you the space and time to make informed decisions about your life within a safe, trusting and accepting relationship.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an Accredited Member of BACP. I hold a Diploma in Counselling and an Advanced Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Practice and Couples Counselling and I also lecture in Counselling.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
