Hello and thank you for visiting my profile and for taking the first tentative step along the path to being able to live life more fully. It is good that you are paying attention to your own well-being and are considering counselling.
I am friendly and approachable and your well-being is at the core of the work we will undertake together. The aim is to work collaboratively alongside you, so you can look at past or present issues that are causing you concern. Counselling is about spending dedicated time, where you and I can look at concerns you may have and burdens you may be carrying. This will be in confidential, non- judgemental sessions accepting you as you are.
You may wish to phone me on 07503959550 or you may feel more comfortable emailing me on email@example.com It is really important that you feel comfortable and for us to be able to build a relationship. You can be assured that what you say in the room is confidential. There are specific circumstances when, in order to keep you safe I will need to make an exception, such as if you are at risk.
I offer face to face therapy in a secure environment, where there is wheelchair access and disabled parking immediately outside.
I am DBS checked and a registered member of BACP. I am fully insured and attend supervision and continuing professional development.
I am happy to undertake both short-term work of 6-10 sessions, where we can focus on specific issues, as well as longer-term work.

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.
