I am a qualified Counsellor offering a confidential, non judgmental space where we can explore your thoughts, feelings, behaviours and anything else that may be affecting you.
With the clients best interests at the heart of my work, my aim is to offer a supportive therapeutic relationship where you can gain a better understanding of yourself and your world. Together we can explore and work through your challenges and begin to make the positive changes you desire going forward.
My approach to Counselling is eclectic, this means I draw on a framework of several theoretical approaches. This enables me to use different techniques to suit individual needs as I don't believe that Counselling is 'one size fits all'.
I offer both long and short term therapy.
I offer a low cost initial session where we can discuss how we could work together. Please contact me for availability.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and studied an Integrative Approach.
I am committed to safe and ethical practise, undergoing regular supervision with a highly trained Counsellor and attend regular training workshops and personal therapy.
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.
