About me

I would describe my work with patients as integrative, underpinned by the Humanistic, Person Centred theoretical orientation. I believe patients are the experts of themselves and my role is to provide a safe therapeutic environment where we can 'work together' in confidentiality.  I conduct my sessions with patients remotely; using video calls (Zoom/Skype) audio calls (telephone); live messaging and therapeutic e-mails (T.E) I have undergone additional training to work in these remote ways which is CPCAB approved. Patients can expect our therapy sessions to show respect, transparency, honesty and adherence to professional ethics and boundaries where no judgement will be made.

The first therapy session will be an assessment. It is also a chance for patients to decide if they feel comfortable working with me. I also take this opportunity to assess that the therapy I am trained to deliver is appropriate to the patient's needs and give the patient appropriate feedback.

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.
