Sometimes as counsellors we can feel pushed and pulled in many directions and everything feels as if it is put into question. I work with counsellors with many different levels of experience, many working towards a counselling qualification. I aim to enable you to value your own ideas and feelings through discussion and exploration, so you can become more confident in the way you practice. I have nine years post qualifying experience as a humanistic counsellor, and although my supervision training certificate is psycho dynamic, I have both awareness and respect for different modalities. I am intrinsically humanistic, however my psycho dynamic training has added an extra slant to my awareness and knowledge. My role is to support and challenge you sufficiently with the skill to enable you to explore. I enjoy helping therapists build their own strengths.Many therapists suffer from a degree of psychic disturbance themselves, and through this have become sensitive to other peoples' personal experiences. It can be this very aspect of their own lives which attracted them to the demanding work of engaging with others around their emotional dillemmas. As a therapist myself, I am aware of my own need for regular supervision, and recognise how valuable it can be to 'touch base', and reflect on my own practice and emotional well being. I am available outside set times and am happy to meet you initially so we can find out how we can work together. My fee is £50 per hour, or £65.00 for an hour and a half.
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).
