Sometimes, we just haven’t given ourselves time and space to explore our feelings, challenges and hopes for the future. I am here to offer you that space and time, and to be with you as you move forward.
My belief is that we all have the ability to change our lives, and face and resolve personal challenges through Person Centred (talking) therapy, and the relationship formed between client and counsellor is a key part of this process.
I can offer Face-to-Face short term or long term counselling, telephone counselling and Skype Counselling.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy) Registered Counsellor.
I am qualified as an Integrative Person Centred Counsellor and would be happy to discuss any area of support you may feel you need.
I work within the BACP ethical framework, and adhere to the BACP’s complaints procedure.
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
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).
