I believe that everyone deserves to find peace and contentment in their life, and that gaining greater self-knowledge and understanding is an essential part of the process.
How can I help?
I provide a safe and confidential space for you to explore your feelings, thoughts and beliefs at your own pace, in an atmosphere of warmth and compassion. I will hear you without judgement, and help you to make sense of what is troubling you so that you can come to terms with events and learn to value yourself more deeply.
I am a warm and approachable listener and will offer empathy and acceptance. I work in an integrative way, which means that I am flexible in my approach and can adapt my way of working to suit you.
I work from home in a quiet area not far from the centre of Worcester.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor, having gained a post-graduate diploma in counselling and psychotherapy from the University of South Wales. I am qualified to work with children and young people, as well as adults, and have gained a CPCAB Level 5 certificate in counselling children and young people.
I am experienced at working with children, adolescents and adults, in schools and in the charity sector, as well as in my own practice. I have worked with a range of problems such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, loss, anger management and relationship issues. Before qualifying as a counsellor I worked for many years in education and understand the pressures and strains that school and college life imposes on young people and their families.
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.
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.
