During difficult times, life can feel overwhelming and you may not know which way to turn. You may be struggling with a relationship or suffering from anxiety. You may be experiencing difficulties which stem from something that has happened to you, such as a traumatic event, bereavement or loss. You may simply need to talk to someone about things you have not been able to discuss with anyone before. I work within a partnership of three counsellors. We see counselling as a journey of self-discovery and our aim is to help you understand yourself better. We recognise it is important to you to find someone to talk to, who will listen as well someone you can trust.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a psychodynamically trained counsellor. I have a wealth of experience in counselling as well as community roles. I am BACP registered, fully insured and all my work is overseen by an experienced supervisor. I take the confidentially of my clients very seriously and comply with the BACP code of ethics.
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
My aim is to make counselling accessible to everyone, regardless of your financial situation. I use a sliding scale to make counselling affordable. Rates are between £30 and £60 per session dependent on income, however I offer a limited number of subsidised places ranging from £10 to £20 per session.
