If you would like to integrate schema-therapy theory and techniques into your practice, or need help with your most complex cases, I offer supervision online via Zoom. I also provide workshops for mental-health professionals, as well as lecturing on schema therapy and working with trauma/complex cases.
I am an Advanced Accredited Schema Therapist, Trainer & Supervisor. I also draw from a wide range of highly effective models in my work with clients and supervisees, including cognitive behaviour therapy, compassion-focused therapy, internal family systems therapy and Janina Fisher’s trauma-informed stabilisation treatment. This is enriched by my longstanding personal and professional interest in mindfulness and Buddhism.
I am also Founder of Heal Your Trauma, a project I developed to help people struggling with the impact of trauma. I’m passionate about helping trauma survivors, who often have to deal with a wide range of physical and mental health problems. The project involves guided meditations, webinars, workshops and self-help books, as well as my Heal Your Trauma Blog, which you can read on this site. And all of the teaching and supervision I offer is trauma-focused, so a key part of this project is helping other mental-health professionals develop a trauma-informed practice, incorporating the latest developments in trauma therapy into their work.
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.
