MSc MBACP | Children & Young People Counsellor

About me

I am an integrative and creative counsellor specialised in working with children and young people.

My practice is largely informed by CBT and Systemic Therapy (Family Therapy) as I believe that the environment we live in, the relationships we have, and the experiences we have lived hugely affect who we are today.

As we all know life can be tough at times and we may feel distressed or have problems that may be hard to talk about with people close to us.

Counselling is a place where you can come and talk about all these things and much more.

I offer tailored short-term and solution-focused interventions normally between 6 and 12 sessions according to the issues presented. Art and play therapy are utilised when working face to face with children and young people.

Before getting involved with counselling it is important for you to know that :

  • You won’t be blamed or judged despite what the problem is
  • You won’t be told what to do
  • You will be heard carefully
  • You will be helped to sort things out in a way that suits you
  • You will be given the time and space you need

For more information feel free to book an initial consultation with no obligation to start ongoing counselling.

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.
