About me

Professional Profile

I am a registered member and accredited therapist of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I trained as a therapist in the early 2000’s and became a BACP accredited therapist in 2016.

I was a member of the psychological medicine team at KIMS hospital when it opened in 2014 until 2021.  I have worked in several settings including schools and charities as well as private health care.  I now see clients at the Mind and Body clinic in Tonbridge.

I worked for ten years in London for an organisation for the blind, counselling those living with sight loss; whether through being diagnosed with an eye condition or through accidents or trauma.

I have experience in working with those diagnosed with life-changing conditions, clients experiencing depression, anxiety and stress, as well as confidence issues, loss and lifestyle transitions. E.g. separation, stepfamilies and retirement. These transitional periods in our lives can introduce several issues and because they are so common we expect to be able to deal with them when we may often need some support in order to adapt to the changes.

Member organisations

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.
