About me

Hello,

Therapy is a process that only works when you feel completely at ease with your therapist.

Once you feel that relationship works, the possibilities are endless. My aim is not just to help you confront the immediate challenge or fear that has led you to seek therapy, but to help you understand and grow. Ultimately, I want to help you facilitate lasting change.

So please contact me any time to say hello. There’s no obligation or fee to chat. We can decide whether to explore the possibility of a first meeting – be it in person, online, or over the phone.

I am trained in a variety of approaches and my role is to adapt them to you, your relationships, your background and your experience. My first job is simply to listen.

What I can promise is that I will never judge. Mine is an open space in which I celebrate diversity and difference. Our relationship will be unique. And you can introduce me to parts of yourself that may be hidden or that you may find embarrassing or unacceptable.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Simon

Training, qualifications & experience

Diploma in integrative counselling from The Minster Centre, London.

Registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership

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).
