MBACP Counsellor Therapist

About me

I am an experienced integrative counsellor/therapist and can help with many aspects of  life; Anxiety, stress, bereavement, and family issues  I offer long and short term therapy.

I work in a confidential, safe space where we can explore together where you are at the moment and where you would like to be.

I have experience in helping adults with many difficult aspects of life - these include: anxiety, bereavement and loss, depression, relationships, stress and many other challenging issues.

Everyone is unique so I bring a flexible approach to our sessions, whether that is on a short or long term basis. I welcome diversity and have a special interest in dyslexia and its effects on life.

Why not email me to set up an initial no charge phone consultation.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at the Minster Centre. I have a Diploma in Integrative Counselling. In addition to my private practice I am one of the counsellors at Wandworth Bereavement Center in Wandworth and have extensive experience working with bereavement. As a registered member of the BACP I comply with their ethical framework. I am fully insured and have a current DBS in compliance with the BACP guidelines. All personal data is stored confidentially and safely.

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.

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.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Why not try working on line. No traveling or difficulty with access and since the beginning of 'lock down' I have found it a very easy and effective way of counselling.
