British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Sometimes life can present us with difficult experiences that can leave us feeling lost, confused, and unable to find a way forward. Its not always easy to make the decision to seek help, especially from someone who is a complete stranger, no matter what professional assurances they offer. To reach out for help is act of courage, not defeat, a new beginning, not a last hope.
On a personal note, from one human being to another, I also know what its like to found yourself in a dark place, and I offer you the respect, safety and acceptance to you upon your journey to understanding yourself.
You can contact me via email or telephone, which I may not always be able to answer if I'm working, but if you leave a message on my voicemail I will contact you as soon as I can.
