I am a registered member of the BACP – British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy – and, as such, incorporate their Ethical Principles into my practice. I aim for professional transparency, which is why I offer here some pertinent questions and show, through information sheets from these links, how my regulating body might encourage you to explore them:

What is counselling and psychotherapy?

What do Counsellors and Psychotherapists do?

How do I choose a therapist?

How do I get the best out of my therapist?

What happens in your first session with your therapist?

What is the role of professional boundaries  in the therapy work?

Where can I go for advice if I have concerns about my therapy?

I hope this gives you enough information to start with. It may well be that we’ll discuss many of these as we set up how we’ll work and get to know each other.

I always encourage you to ask any questions you have.
