This is the boring and dry long list of much of my training and experience, but which I hope gives you some confidence about whether I might have the skills and knowledge to support you. Here goes...

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and belong to their Coaching division. I am also an Accredited Counsellor with the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society (NCPS). The BACP and NCPS are accredited by the Professional Standards Authority set up by the UK Government's Health & Social Care DepartmentI'm also registered with the Mindfulness Teachers' Register in the UK. In order to join these professional ethical bodies I have had to prove that I have passed professional qualifications and work to good professional standards to ensure that you, as a client, are  able to receive the best possible therapeutic care. I have also received enhanced-DBS checks (for working with children and vulnerable adults). I aim to be a culturally-sensitive, trauma-informed, and non-oppressive practitioner. You are in safe hands.

All my therapeutic work is clinically supervised according to professional standards.
