Reaching out and seeking support can be a daunting experience. If you are feeling anxious, stressed, sad or have a specific issue you need to work through, then reaching out is the first step.
I offer a humanistic, person centred approach to counselling, where I believe that all people have the ability to be and grow into the person they truly want to be. Working through your concerns is an important step towards this.
I feel that the individual will always know themselves the best and I offer a non judgmental, authentic, open and honest, safe space for you to explore and work on concerns and issues.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have experience of working within the NHS and a local council children's centre (with parents) offering both short term and long term counselling for a variety of problems such as bereavement, chronic and long term illness, stress, depression and anxiety.
Being a qualified, registered member of the BACP, I work within their ethical framework and guideline's to ensure I work in the right and safest way for my clients.
I have personal experience with chronic illness so feel that I can offer the support and empathic understanding to work with this issue and all it brings to life.
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.
