I am a member of BACP (the British Association Of Counselling and Psychotherapy] and am on the BACP Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists [registration number 174056] accredited by the Professional Standards Authority [PSA] for Health and Social Care, an independent body accountable to Government.
The BACP Register of Counsellors & Psychotherapists is a public record of therapists who have met BACP's standards for registration. These standards cover training, supervision, continuing professional development and a commitment to BACP's Ethical Framework.
I am also a member of PTUK (Play Therapy UK) as a Senior Clinical Supervisor and on their PSA Register.
Along with other professionals also on the PSA Register, I was invited to be in their film which explains in a clear and succinct way what the Register means - please take a look by clicking:
I hold a current DBS and indemnity insurance; I am clinically supervised by an experienced and qualified Supervisor and undergo annual CPD training to deepen my knowledge and ensure the safety and effectiveness of my practice.
