Counsellor & Psychotherapist Reg. Accredited MBACP, BPC

About me

Do you feel down, anxious, stuck, dissatisfied, or lost? Are you struggling in a relationship or to move on from past events? Having a trained professional who will listen and understand without judgement can help.

What I can offer you is a safe, confidential space to help you explore whatever it is that has brought you to this point. My work is underpinned by my psychodynamic training which means thinking and looking at how past events may be affecting your current situation. Gaining deeper understanding of this can help you to make different choices or think about things differently.

Asking for help and finding the right counsellor or psychotherapist for you can be a daunting prospect so I offer a free initial 15 minute telephone consultation to assess whether what I offer is right for you and to ensure we are comfortable working together. It is also a time for you to ask any questions you may have.

Once we have agreed to continue, we will meet once weekly at the same time and day for 50 minutes.

My consulting room is near Stonehenge 

I am easily accessible from Salisbury, Warminster, Amesbury, Durrington, Andover, Upavon, Pewsey, Marlborough, Devizes, and villages on the Salisbury Plain.

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.
