BACP. The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) is a large organisation that many counsellors around the UK are registered with. If counsellors are accredited by the BACP it means they have completed a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
My services are offered within a GP Surgery on a voluntary basis and low cost private basis at a counselling agency and counsellor training college, this provides me with an ongoing supply of varied caseloads which I welcome as it stretches my practice and encourages me to be up to date with current methods and thinking.
I have volunteered at the relationship counselling organisation Relate.
Provided bereavement counselling at a local bereavement counselling agency.
My experience has given me a wide and varied exposure to many different environments and individuals.
This has helped achieve the results that clients get from the blend of therapy and coaching I offer and feel privileged to do the work that I now do.
I have now been in a mixture of both employment and self employment in excess of thirty years. I have owned and run my own successful businesses that have given me a wide ranging view of the ups and downs of being a business owner.
Together with my relational and psychological training it gives me the unique ability of seeing things from both sides of the fence at times, as not only am I well versed in theory I have done the practical also, in the workplace running my own business, managing relationships and so on, blending this together gives a well rounded approach to my practice and to my clients in both the private and business sector.
I also continue to offer my coaching work with business owners and in the corporate sector for Executive Leaders and Managers which is both valuable and interesting.
