I offer a collaborative space that is simultaneously supportive, affirmative and gently challenging to help you to develop you skills and knowledge, to learn and grow as a counsellor. Helping you to maintain professional standards and when needed, focusing on legal and ethical practice, as well as functional aspects of running your private practice and safeguarding. Finally, to support you and help manage stress in your practice, exploring areas you are finding challenging, and supporting you to explore other ideas and perspective.
I use the Seven eyed model of supervision. This is a holistic model which considers the whole of the therapeutic process, the relational inter-play between yourself, your client, and their wider context. It engages with your understanding and experience of your client work, not to apply interpretations, but to focus on how your experience them in the here and now of therapy to allow you an opportunity to reflect on how you are working together.
I am a BACP accredited integrative counsellor working with adults, both individuals and relationships/couples. My experience includes work with common mental health problems, relationships, self-esteem, sexual and physical abuse, religious doubt and spiritual abuse. I use Transactional Analysis, Gestalt and Person-Centred therapy and have been working with clients since 2018. I work in private practice, as well as for EAP's and various agencies. I am also a counselling tutor, with experience of teaching on CPCAB courses.

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.
