I am a registered accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and as such is regulated by their own ethical framework, policies and standards. I received my BACP Accreditation in 2007 and UKRCP in 2008. You can also find me in the Counselling Directory, Counselling pages, and Directory Independent.
As a specialising Psychodynamic Psychotherapist, my initial training was Integrative counselling. My passion to find the root cause of mental health issues and treatment to manage mental health wellbeing led me to specialise in Psychoanalysis.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have over 10 years’ experience in providing short term counselling and long term psychotherapy on a wide range of mental health issues. I tailor my approach to the individual and work creatively with compassion and kindness. I have worked in GP surgeries, Inpatient Acute Psychiatry, Children’s centres’, Voluntary sector and in Private practice. I believe a good therapeutic relationship and trust in the process is central to one’s treatment & recovery.
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.
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.
