The thing that brought you to counselling is that something is distressing you. Some aspect of your life is not right and you would like to change it. Counselling is a way for you to clear your mind and develop a better understanding of where you are and where you might wish to go. Counselling is about managing change in the most effective way and working through the issues in a safe, supportive and confidential setting.
It might be that you are experiencing difficulties with a relationship.
You may be struggling with work issues.
You may be suffering from low confidence or anxiety.
You may be unhappy and can’t quite put your finger on it.
Counselling is a process that can help you move forward.
I can offer you a place where the sole object is focus on you, your life, your feelings and what you want to achieve. The process is sensitive to your pace and to the issues that you need to explore but also purposeful with a result in mind.
I also offer couples counselling, giving couples hope for the future by building a better relationship. Please call for details.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified Counsellor & Psychotherapist. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP).
I am trained in integrative and relational therapy, which sets the relationship at the heart of the process and allows the counsellor to tailor the method of counselling to the needs of the client. This means that I can match my approach to your needs so that you can get the most benefit from counselling.
I am a qualified couples counsellor.
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.
