BACP Accredited Counsellor (MBACP.Accred.)

About me

I believe that counselling has the potential to make a real difference to people’s lives. My aim as a counsellor is to provide a safe, confidential space in which you can explore your issues and really be listened to, without being judged. I will work with you to help you achieve a greater understanding of yourself and your situation, to alleviate your emotional distress, to facilitate change, find new perspectives and realise your full potential.

I work from home. My therapy room is a safe and comfortable space that is separate from the rest of the house. The location is quiet and private, with off road parking adjacent to the entrance. I offer daytime and evening appointments.

I am based in Warwickshire, in a location that is accessible for clients from that county as well as from Leicestershire, Staffordshire and West Midlands.

However, to ensure my services are fully accessible to all UK residents, I also provide telephone or online (Zoom) sessions.

I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor, (MBACP Accred.) working in private practice. I have qualifications and experience in counselling, hypnotherapy and teaching:

  • Certificate in Counselling Studies Level 3.
  • Certficate in Counselling Skills Level 2.

Prior to working in private practice I spent seven years at West Leicestershire MIND.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

I have a portable ramp to use at the entrance to my therapy room.
