Registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
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.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Face to face counselling - £40 (£45 from April 2020)
- £60 per 90min session (£45/hr from April 2020)
I offer counselling supervision to both trainee and qualified counsellors. My supervision is informed by the Integrative approach whilst having a firm base in Person Centred core values. I feel that I can offer a space in which a collaborative and supportive relationship can evolve and where supervisees can explore their challenges and experiences. I understand and respect supervisees need for automony in their own practice and am able to support this through effective review and reflection.
I aim to assist my supervisees to provide good practice in an ethical and professional way by giving experienced and supportive third person perspective.
