I practice a Relational form of Transactional Analysis Counselling, which is integrative in so much that it draws upon humanistic, psychodynamic, psychoanalytic and cognitive behavioral approaches, this permits me to tailor therapy to your individual requirements in a non-judgmental and caring way while keeping in focus your personal goals and reasons for seeking therapy.
Professionally trained at the Metanoia Institute in London and a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy with rooms in Marlborough & Swindon. See me on LinkedIn for more detail.

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.

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).
