I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and closely follow their ethical framework which is explained in detail here.

Previously, I spent three years working at a large company in Farnborough within the Occupational Health Department counselling employees and at a counselling charity in Wokingham.
