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)
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
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.
