Dip. Couns - individual member of BACP

About me

I’m very aware that people with pre-existing anxiety may find it harder to cope at this current time. As well as face to face counselling, I am also offering telephone counselling or online support to help you find ways to get through this particularly difficult time. Feel free to give me a call or text if you’d like me to explain how to arrange a session. Also what to expect from counselling if you haven’t been before.
I am a qualified counsellor and work as a member of the BACP. I carried out my training over five years at West Cheshire College in the North West of England.

Integrative counselling allows me to draw on three different strands of counselling theory, teamed with the ethical code I am bound by under the BACP, this means I am always working with the client's best interests at heart.

I have worked with a wide range of clients suffering from an equally wide range of issues and whereby I understand that every person's experiences are different, I am able to draw on my knowledge to help establish a close empathic understanding.

I am an open, honest, trustworthy counsellor able to create a safe and confidential place for the client to open up and work toward helping themselves.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified in therapeutic counselling in 2018, from West Cheshire College. I trained in integrative counselling, Using three different strands of theory. I have over three years experience of face to face counselling. I also have experience of telephone and video counselling.

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.
