About me

I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and am a Senior BACP Accredited Practitioner. I have a wide range of expertise from long-term psychotherapy to the use of short-term counselling interventions, including the use of CBT and EMDR, as well as many years experience as a Couples Therapist. I have worked in various GP healthcare settings (PCT’s, NHS) as well as working as an associate therapist at Worcester Therapy Group in Worcester and as a therapist for West Mercia Police working with officers suffering from PTSD. I am also an experienced group facilitator and trainer, and a registered Supervisor with BAPPS (British Association of Psychodynamic Psychoanalytic Supervisors).  I am trained to level 4 in EMDR and a member of EMDR UK and Ireland

Training, qualifications & experience

I did my original training with Westminster Pastoral Foundation qualifying in 2003 with a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling, subsequently gaining more specialist qualifications in the use of CBT and EMDR, which I am able to utilise fully in my psychotherapeutic practice. I am currently in the process of obtaining my Masters in EMDR at the University of Worcester.

I am a Senior Accredited member of The British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), as well as being a registered member of the British Association of Psychoanalytic and Psychodynamic Supervisiors (BAPPS). As a member of BACP I fully adhere to its Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy, as well as the Westminster Pastoral Foundation’s (WPF) own Code of Ethics and Practice.

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.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
