I provide a supportive working relationship. I do this by offering a confidential space to reflect on how you are feeling and to explore what is going on in your life.
Sometimes it can be hard to open up to people in our lives. Counselling is a chance to speak to someone completely separate from your friends and family.
It is an opportunity for you to focus on yourself and how life is impacting on you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I completed my Bsc Psychology degree in 2007 and my Advanced Diploma in Therapeutic counselling in 2012. I am accredited with the BACP. My training was integrative therefore I use a combination of person centred and cognitive behavioral therapy skills, tailored to the client needs.
I have worked in an occupational health setting for many years which has provided me with a breadth of experience including:
- Relationship difficulties; both personal and professional
- Workplace bullying
- Struggles with balancing work and home life
- Low self esteem and self worth
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.
