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.

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 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).

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.
