Registered MBACP (Accred), Counsellor/ Psychotherapist

About me

I’m a Registered BACP Accredited Counsellor, working with Individuals and Couples.  People that I work with often have difficulties in Relationships, Low Self-esteem, Depression, Abuse, Bereavement and Losses, particularly issues arising from childhood.

I offer a compassionate and confidential therapeutic relationship to help you overcome a wide range of problems.

I see people in pleasant, relaxing surroundings in Swindon, where you can feel safe and secure in discussing your worries and concerns.

Individuals come for counselling because they want to overcome barriers to moving forward in their lives.

Couples come for counselling when they want to improve their understanding of their relationship; how they can transform how they are both with themselves and with their partner and how together they can form a more satisfying relationship.

My aim is to help you gain (or regain) ways and means to be happy and fulfilled as you go forward in Life, managing your current and any future worries and problems that may occur.

Please contact me if you think I can help.

I have a current DBS check (formerly known as a CRB check) at the Enhanced level to work with Adults and Children.

I adhere to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy's "Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy".

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

UKRCP

United Kingdom Register of Counsellors / Psychotherapists (UKRCP) (UKRCP)

The UKRCP is a voluntary register of Counsellors / Psychotherapists held by BACP. A condition of registration is accreditation with either BACP, COSCA, UKAHPP or FDAP.

Registered practitioners are entitled to be known as a UKRCP Registered Independent Counsellor / Psychotherapist.

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.
