I work in a tranquil village location that offers a safe space to talk openly and freely, without the distractions of the busy world outside. Through our sessions together we work to find out why you may feel that you are unable to cope with whatever issues you may have and find solutions that will enable you to regain control and shift the unhappiness that you are experiencing.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have an MA in psychotherapy and counselling and am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) which means that I adhere to their rules and proficiency guidelines. I have undertaken training at Guy's Hospital, London, and worked as a counsellor at a school in Peterborough.
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.
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.
