You've already made a huge first step by making it to this page. Whether we go on to work together or not, I want to recognise the initial move you're making just by being here. I know how challenging it can be when you know you need to do something/change something or explore something. Sometimes the task seems so daunting that it appears easier to just not take that first step, to hide or to distract yourself with a different task. This is why I work with all my clients at the pace that is right for them.
I'm an integrative counsellor with 10+ years of training and experience working with an array of clients. My core way of being is humanistic, this means that I am led by the client and their needs. Essentially if you feel you need to work within a CBT approach or you wish to look at the past (Psychodynamic) I'm flexible and able to accommodate this.
Our first session is all about deciding whether I'm the right counsellor for you and what your needs from therapy are. You may not know this yet and that is ok, we can explore this together. Simply reach out via text, email or call and we can go from there.
Training, qualifications & experience
I'm registered with the BACP (British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists) and also the BPS (British Psychological Society). I have a degree in Psychology and I am currently working towards my doctorate in Counselling Psychology.
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.
