About me and my therapy practice
I am a member and Senior Accredited with BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). Accreditation means I have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association. This also means I am required to renew my accreditation on an annual basis and provide evidence of continual professional development (CPD).
I am also an EMDR Europe Accredited Practitioner. Accredited Practitioners are recognised as having demonstrated their competence in the practice of EMDR under supervision of an EMDR Consultant.
Since 2003 I have continuously worked as a counsellor/psychotherapist. I have experience within Primary Care, Criminal Justice System; voluntary (these are at ‘Mind’ in Barnsley and BSARCS (Barnsley Sexual Abuse & Rape Crisis Service) and private practice and work with both short and long term clients. What happens? I offer one to one appointments for a whole range of issues. They last an hour and are usually weekly at the same day and same time each week. Part of our first session involves a brief contract which we agree between us. I will provide a safe confidential environment in a self contained log cabin the grounds of my home. Further Information. Off street parking is available. Unfortunately no waiting room is available for anyone accompanying you! Where possible arrive 5 minutes before your appointment time in order for therapy to take place at the allocated time in the therapy room. I offer flexible hours Monday to Friday and Saturday mornings to suit working people. To access my premises there is one step to the room. I have an Enhanced Certificate (DBS) Disclosure & Barring Service dated June 2020.
