About me

About me and my practice

It may sometimes feel like life has lost its meaning and the ability to cope is becoming incredibly difficult leading to breakdown or stressful situations. Having a safe space, someone who understands your world and willing to help clarify the root of your problem whilst guiding you in making decisions and life’s choices may help to bring about a positive change.

I will provide you a confidential and supportive space where you can discuss difficulties free from criticism or judgement, share feelings, look more deeply at your past, present and future, giving meaning to your experiences. Together, we will develop a professional relationship where healing and an emotional shift can occur; resulting in growth and improved well-being.

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.
