About me

Hi, my practice name is Serenity Counselling. As a Counsellor and Play therapist, I am a registered member and work under the ethical guidelines of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). You can read more about the BACP by clicking on the box below.

I have found over the years that being with someone who can offer a therapeutic relationship where you can feel safe and secure is something that is not always available in our day-to-day living.

Although I'm trained as a Person-centred counsellor, I work Integratively, drawing upon other modalities in the helping profession.

  • humanistic therapies
  • psychoanalytical and psychodynamic therapies
  • cognitive and behavioral therapies

Training, qualifications & experience

Level 4 Dip in Therapeutic Counselling

Post Graduate Diploma in Play Therapy

Post Graduate Certificate in Therapeutic Play Skills

Level Six in online and face-2-face Supervision

Online counseling certificate.

Member organisations

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
