Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I work integratively which means I adapt to individual client needs, rather than the clients fitting into the way I work. I have undertaken additional training in Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which has been proved extremely beneficial for clients with anxiety, depression, panic attacks, post natal depression, stress, low self-esteem and loss. Clinical supervision is also available to pactitioners. This provides a constructive disussion for you to explore the work you are doing, with clients. Supporting you to examine your own way of being, looking at feelings, thoughts, and any fears that may emerge in your work. This relationship is desgined to support and enable you, to move forward in your work. Iam an experienced and registered  Mindfulness Teacher, Running regular Mindfulness Programmes since 2012.  .b Trained and Paws b. to deliver Mindfulness in schools.

Further information

Mindfulness based cognitive therapy (MBCT) is a process of paying attention to our thoughts and feelings moment to moment without judgment. Learning to tune into what is going on within our experiences by suspending all self-criticism.

Becoming aware of our thoughts and feelings may not sound like the most obvious way to overcome stress, anxiety or depression. Learning to refrain from negative self-judgment and self-criticism can have an amazing effect.

We also provide anti depressant and minor tranquiliser withdrawal support. Although these drugs can be of help in the short term, they can also increase symptoms if taken longer than the recommended length of time. Many people have found themselves dependent on prescribed drugs, even though they have been prescribed by a GP.
