As an integrative counsellor I make use of a number of counselling approaches, depending on a clients presenting issue. I have worked with a range of clients, dealing with issues from anxiety and depression to grief and relationship problems (and many things in between). As well as seeing adults, I also have a post-qualifying diploma in counselling children and young people, and see young people from the age of 13. I feel the earlier issues are faced the less impact they may have in later life.
I have experience of working in a number of settings, including charity organisations, schools, colleges and privately and see clients on both a short or long term basis.

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.
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.
