Things to not worry about

(You already worry enough)


Be confident in choosing Clipstone Beach Counselling

There is very little legal regulation of therapists and counsellors in the UK at the moment. Your 'counsellor' might only have had a few weeks' training and have no qualifications - it can be hard to tell from their adverts!

Therapy can also be a vulnerable time too - you want to know that your therapist works ethically and respectfully. At Clipstone Beach these are things you don't have to worry about.

Everything you say in therapy is confidential, with two small exceptions. Legally if you tell me you are involved in money laundering or acts of terrorism I have to inform the authorities. Apart from that nothing you say goes any further without your permission.


I trained at Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute in Nottingham, one of the leading organisations in the UK. I am accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and qualified at Masters level. 


I am a member of the BACP and the UKCP and abide by their codes of ethical practice. If you have any concerns about your therapy that we cannot resolve they can assist.
