I am a caring, accepting and understanding counsellor, offering one to one sessions in Barnsley town centre. I offer all clients a safe, private and quiet environment in which to explore whatever is troubling them.
You may be struggling to manage your thoughts and feelings or behaviours, possibly as a result of a crisis such as a bereavement, loss of a job or difficulties in a relationship.
You might feel you are lacking in confidence, that life is getting on top of you and you'd like someone to talk to...someone who will also support you to manage those difficult feelings better.
If you require an appointment then please do not hesitate to contact me via email or phone. There is disabled access to the building
Training, qualifications & experience
MSc Developmental Psychology
BSc (hons) Psychology
Dip Therapeutic Counselling
I have been counselling for over 5 years and I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. In my work I abide by their ethical framework for good practice.
I also adhere to the BACP's requirement for continuing training, professional development and monthly supervision to ensure safe practice.
I have specific experience of working with clients affected by low self esteem, anxiety, domestic abuse, drug and alcohol addiction, bereavement and eating disorders.
I have over 8 years experience as a volunteer with Samaritans.
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.
