I really do understand how daunting it can be to find a counsellor - especially when you are feeling at your most concerned and vulnerable. And finding a suitable counsellor isn't easy - the profession isn't yet 'protected', which means anyone can call themselves a counsellor or psychotherapist and practise as such.
With the following information I hope to let you know that I am a well-trained, experienced and reliable practitioner in this field. You are very welcome to come and have a talk, your first meeting with me is always free of charge.

Although counsellors do not have to be members of any regulatory membership organisation you should always ensure yours is.

I belong to two: I am a Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and an Accredited Member of the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society (NCPS) (formerly the NCS). I also hold membership of the ‘Children, Young People and Families’ sub-divisions of both. As a member of these bodies I adhere to their Ethical Frameworks, am committed to maintaining safe and professional boundaries, undertake ongoing professional training and am bound by their complaints procedures.

Counsellors can join and work under a membership organisation with a Level 4 qualification in counselling and, although not advised to, any counsellor can elect to work with children and young people.

My counsellor training has all been at Level 7 at the University of Cambridge. My qualifications include a Post-Graduate Certificate in Psychotherapeutic Counselling, a Post-Graduate Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling and, holding a Masters Degree in Integrative Child and Adolescent Psychotherapeutic Counselling, I am specifically trained to work with young people.
