Supervision details

Hello, my name is Yvonne. I am an experienced therapist of 10+ years and am passionate about the work that I do. I am a BACP accredited therapist, qualified supervisor & counselling lecturer specialising in personal and professional development.

I have a purpose built, and cosy log cabin, which provides a safe and welcoming environment for you to be able to start to explore your thoughts and feelings.

When approaching counselling, I am aware that this is a daunting and sometimes frightening task. I would like to be able to offer a confidential and comforting environment for you, to be able to unpack and explore your concerns to a point where you gain understanding and acceptance for yourself.

I work predominantly Person-Centred, which means that I believe you are the focus of the therapy. I am however trained and experienced in many other theories which we can explore if it is appropriate and/or necessary.  I can offer many creative interventions to assist in your journey.

I have spent many years working with the survivors of sexual and domestic violence and found this work to be very rewarding and humbling. I have also worked with bereavement and find another passion in helping individuals through the trauma of loss.

I have experienced first hand the power that counselling in a safe and supportive setting can do for your own empowerment. My ambition is to provide the space and empathy to help others find that empowerment for themselves.

BACP
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.
