About me

An initial telephone call or email prior to meeting, will allow you to ask any questions about therapy or clinical supervision with me, whilst also gaining a sense of who I am. It will also provide you with the opportunity to share as much or as little as you like, of what it is that currently challenges you.

My personal and professional approach is warm and mindful, I regard each of us as a unique human being. I am able to work with your life experiences with sensitivity and as an integrative practitioner, I am able to draw on a range of therapeutic approaches that will specifically focus on your individual needs. I will offer you a skilled and compassionate approach to explore core emotional responses, patterns of behaviour or relationship dynamics that currently present as challenging.

Member organisations

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.
