MBACP Dip Counselling BA(hons)

About me

During the Covid 19 pandemic I am able to offer sessions via secure video link.

I am a qualified BACP counsellor offering long term and short -term individual therapy to adult clients.I work in a compassionate and empathic way with a Person Centred Approach which allows me to provide a non-judgemental, confidential space to allow the time for you to explore your feelings and concerns.

I believe in building a therapeutic relationship built on trust, honesty and respect, enabling us to find solutions together. I am passionate about the benefits of counselling and the belief that a non- directive, Person centred approach can enable you to feel empowered to work through areas where you feel stuck, develop coping strategies and move forward.

Getting Stared

It can be a daunting time when thinking of contacting a new counsellor. Please call or email me to set up an initial chat to talk through what you would like to gain from your counselling. If you are happy then we can continue to setting up a session.

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.
