About me

Hello my name is Sindy,

I am a person centred counsellor and I am here to offer you a safe and confidential place in the here and now, to help you explore your thoughts and feelings in a non judgemental manner.

I know the first step of starting counselling can be quite daunting but I am here to answer any questions you may have. Our first session will be to assess how best we can work together for your individual needs, for you to see how I work and to discuss what it is you would like to get out of counselling.
If you are happy to start we can discuss the best time for your next session.

Counselling does not offer advice but helps you to find the best way forward for yourself, help you find your own solutions by me listening and being empathetic.

I also work as a counsellor/Life coach in secondary schools. The students in the schools ages range from 11-16 years old.

I am a registered member of BACP and abide by their ethical framework.

I am also fully insured.

Member organisations

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
