MBACP Snr. Accred

About me

I am an accredited counsellor with 25 years experience working with people dealing with a range of issues. I offer short and long term work for people seeking help with a range of issues including anxiety, depression, bereavement, and trauma. My aim is to offer a supportive, safe and empathic relationship in which you can move towards living and working in more satisfying and resourceful ways and with greater well being and confidence. My approach is based on emotion focused humanistic therapy and I find this way of working particularly helpful in working with depression and anxiety. Additionally I have trained in and developed the use of Expressive and Reflective Writing to support clients in their therapy, if appropriate. See my website for further information.
I am also available for supervision of counsellors and offer Executive Coaching for staff development-again, see my website.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Counselling,(Person Centred) and since my original training have also completed a Diploma in Embodied Relational Therapy and Post Graduate Certificate in Working with Couples.

I have also trained in Emotion Focused Therapy at the University of Strathclyde.

I am a certified Applied Poetry Therapy Facilitator with the IFBPT

I have worked with clients in my Private Practice for 30 years, both long and short term and managed a staff counselling service for a local authority for several years.

I see clients from a range of referral sources including Employee Assistance Programmes, GPs and self referrals. I have been a tutor of various counselling training courses in the North West, including Liverpool John Moores University, Salford University and on the MA in counselling at Manchester University.

I have an Advanced Certificate in Counselling Supervision and an ongoing supervision practice.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

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.
