During our lives it is normal to have times where we experience emotional difficulties and it can be easier to push these difficulties to one side.
I am able to provide a dedicated time for you to concentrate on your emotional well-being within a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space. Exploring and reflecting on what brings you to counselling can begin to lead you to an understanding of your feelings, thoughts and behaviours.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an experienced and qualified Integral Therapeutic Counsellor with nine years experience working with adults, parents and adolescents.
Being an Integral Therapeutic Counsellor means I do not have a 'one size fits all' approach to counselling. Each client is an individual and it is important to use a therapy and theory which best suits the needs of my client depending on where the issue lies.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I attend regular clinical supervision and also attend courses/conferences to keep up to date with current research and counselling techniques.
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.
