MSc Therapeutic Counselling, MBACP (Accred)

About me

I am a BACP accredited integrative counsellor which means I draw upon a range of different theoretical perspectives to best suit your needs. My aim is to provide a safe, empathic, confidential and non-judgmental space for you to talk openly and freely about whatever has brought you to counselling. Through establishing a warm, collaborative therapeutic relationship, I can support you to gain a better understanding of the things that are on your mind and the difficulties you are facing. This can enable you to find different ways of looking at and addressing issues.

Location

Situated a five-minute walk from Blackheath village, my practice premises are discreet, comfortable and easily accessible by public transport. There is also ample street parking available.

Initial Session

It is very important to find a counsellor that you feel you can work with and I offer an initial session at a lower cost of £25 without commitment to further sessions.

I provide ongoing therapy, with regular reviews, as well as brief therapy (up to six sessions).

To find out more about how I might be able to help you, or if you would like to book an initial session, please do get in touch.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • MSc Therapeutic Counselling (Merit)

Prior to setting up my private practice I was a counsellor at a community counselling service, working with clients from diverse backgrounds and presenting with a wide range of issues.

I have a special interest in working with childhood trauma and currently alongside my private practice, I work as a Counsellor for a specialist service in the field of childhood sexual abuse.

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)

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

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).
