The aim is to create a space, online or over the telephone, where you feel safe to share difficult parts of yourself and work towards growth and self-compassion. Working with you in a non-judgmental capacity enables trust to build in a counselling process that is tailored to your needs.
I am a qualified counsellor that works integratively with clients, taking aspects of well-established counselling models to best serve the client. People can feel lost and isolated at the time of seeking help but the first step is to see if counselling is the right fit for you and what you feel able to cope with. I can work creatively to help clients unlock untapped aspects of themselves. The counselling process, with the right relationship, can be the key to the change that is needed and a supportive place to reflect each week.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified counsellor with a Level 5 Diploma and am a registered member of the BACP. I have experience with working with a range of issues. They include: anxiety, loss, grief, low mood and low self-esteem. I currently work with charities, counselling vulnerable people that has enhanced my knowledge and way of working. I am open and curious when working with clients, with the aim to make them feel comfortable in my company. I send a welcome letter explaining how I operate, then if a potential client wants to know more, we set up an initial assessment session to see if we are a good fit. Take a look at my website if you would like to find out more.
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).
