I provide a warm and friendly, safe and confidential counselling experience for every client. I work flexibly and prefer to adapt my approach to suit your needs, rather than working to one particular counselling approach. I describe the way I work as “interpersonal”, that is to say, I work with you, your feelings and your own life experience.
I believe there are three stages to counselling; first you need to understand what you are feeling (emotions are complex and difficult to untangle), secondly you need to understand how you arrived at the place you currently find yourself (this might be about past or current events) and finally you need to find a way forward to truly be yourself, taking control of your life.
You have a right to be happy and to like yourself.
I am interested in helping people who feel stressed and anxious. I work with many people who feel stressed by their job and work situation and I have a particular interest in helping people who work as doctors, ministers of religion, teachers and social workers. However, I see clients from all walks of life, so please do not feel you need to be one of the above!
I am a qualified counsellor and I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework. I see clients from the following areas: South Cambs, North Essex, East Herts, West Suffolk
Training, qualifications & experience
Diploma in Counselling Practice (Dip. Couns.)
Mental Health First Aid (Standard)
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.
