What does 'Accredited' mean...?

Many therapists may say that they can use CBT or offer CBT skills in their practice. However, working towards and achieving an “Accredited status” signifies that you have obtained the highest possible endorsement from the Professional Body, and the BABCP requirements for maintaining that status are strictly monitored to ensure that continued training and up to date contact with research is regularly monitored. The same conditions apply to the BACP for Registered Counsellors.

What do I offer?


  • A collaborative case formulation
  • Effective evidence based psychological therapies for adults and young adolescents, for a wide range of complex mental health difficulties, depression, anxiety disorders, low self-esteem and phobias, with a particular specialism in trauma and PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).
