I am a BACP accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist, and qualified Clinical Supervisor, (NCS Advanced Specialist Diploma in Clinical Supervision). I have over 19 years experience working with adults from all walks and stages of life. I believe supervision plays a vital role in supporting practitioners in their work with clients, and I provide a safe space in which Counsellors can think about, and work creatively with, all aspects of their work. I believe it is important for the maintenance of professional standards and ethics. I am passionate about the work I do, and I know personally the benefits of experiencing a professional therapeutic relationship, and how it can transform the way we think, live and relate to others. In my practice with clients, I work integratively and relationally. I trained as a psychodynamic practitioner initially, and have experienced and had training in other models over the years. In particular, I’m interested in attachment theory and developments in the field of trauma. My continuing commitment to further professional development training and interests in other therapy models, and experience, enables me to adapt to a wide variety of individuals and problems. If interested, please phone me to discuss, or email me.
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
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.
