Counselling is a process in which difficult thoughts and feelings can be explored in a safe and confidential environment. The purpose of counselling is to help you find positive ways in dealing with difficult life situations. I work according to the Person-Centred approach which aims to facilitate your inner capacity for growth.
Apart from counselling, I enjoy walking, reading, and looking after our two boys.
The counselling room is at Parc Menai, Bangor, and has disabled access.
Training, qualifications & experience
Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy (2011, University of Stirling and PERSONA Development & Training, Edinburgh)
MSc Psychology (2002, University of Maastricht, The Netherlands)
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.
