I am a counsellor based in Witney, Oxfordshire. I am committed to helping clients find their own way of dealing with life’s challenges. Experienced in working with both young people and adults to improve and maintain their mental health, we will work together on the problems that you face to find your own path to positive change and to continue with this after the counselling has ended.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Higher Professional Diploma in Counselling and am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I have presented a piece of research on anxiety at the BACP Annual Research Conference 2019 and I am also currently undertaking a Masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy Practice.
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.
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.
