Counselling (MBACP, BA (Hons) Therapeutic Counselling)

About me

There can be many reasons for seeking help in the form of therapy.  Perhaps you have suffered a loss such as a bereavement or divorce.  You may be feeling overwhelmed.  You may feel anxious, or depressed, perhaps as a result of relationship issues, or problems at work.  You may suffer from low self-esteem. You may have unresolved issues from the past. You may be feeling stuck, or off kilter and don't know why.  Perhaps you find yourself saying yes when you really mean no to avoid conflict with others. Or maybe you want to use therapy for self-care, as a way of maintaining good mental health.  Whatever your reason, you have taken the first step to taking control.

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.

Further information

Sometimes trying to make sense of our experiences alone, can feel difficult, overwhelming and isolating.  I can help you with this next step by providing a calm, confidential, and non-judgemental space.  Together we will explore your issues and raise your awareness of how you think and feel and function.  You may discover something needs to change for you to feel better.  I can support you while you uncover ways of implementing changes helping you to unlock the version of yourself you truly want to be.
