My journey to become a psychotherapist began in 2013, at Northern Guild of Psychotherapy and Counselling, where I completed six years of training and assessment before qualifying as a psychotherapist with a Masters degree in Psychotherapy.   The criteria for this training and assessment is set in conjunction with UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy), part of which is a mandatory four years of training, assessing, practice and supervision. This was extended by me for an additional two years as I undertook and completed my Masters degree, qualifying as a psychotherapist in 2019.

Undertaking such a thorough training, assessment and qualifying process demonstrates that I have achieved a standard, nationally recognised by the UKCP.  You can find out more about the UKCP here   As a client, this gives you piece of mind that the training I have received has been professional, thorough and of a high standard, to meet the UKCP accreditation criteria.

As a registered member of the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy), I am bound by their professional ethical codes of conduct and practice in accordance with them and thise if the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).  I also have an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service DBS Certificate (previously the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB).
