MSc Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy, MBACP

About me

Well done for taking the first step to accessing support and alleviating some of the distress you are feeling. This is often the hardest step and the most daunting one but I hope that reading my profile encourages you to take the next step and begin your therapeutic journey.

I am an experienced integrative therapist which means I am skilled in providing person centred therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and attachment based therapy. This integrative approach enables me to be responsive to your needs and tailor the therapy to suit your specific concern. I am experienced in helping adults and young people to overcome anxiety, build self- esteem and confidence, fight depression and low mood, achieve healthy relationships and manage intense or overwhelming emotions such as anger.

I have worked with people suffering from complex and enduring mental health issues and I am therefore well practised in a range of interventions to facilitate change where there is distress.

All therapy is provided within an empathic and non judgemental environment to support you to gain an increased understanding and awareness of yourself and to help you work towards realising and achieving your goals.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

Key details

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.
