I am a qualified person-centred counsellor and a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapy.
With a person-centred counsellor, you’ll be encouraged to bring your own issues to the session – the counselling is led by the client and not directed by the counsellor.
I work with adults and teenagers and am currently working online with clients.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified person-centred counsellor, I also have over 25 years’ experience of working in the military and public sectors, dealing with critical and traumatic incidents. I am an experienced trainer in a variety of mental health and well-being subjects specialising in Mental Health First Aid for adults, youths and in Higher Education.
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.
