Christine Simpson PG Dip Reg. MBACP
I am an experienced and professional counsellor in Tamworth and a registered member of BACP.
I offer a safe and supportive space to talk in complete confidence and help you understand emotional and behavioural issues or problems that may be troubling you: anxiety, relationship difficulties, depression, grief, abuse, self confidence, eating and much more; and to find the best solution to move forward and bring about change in your life.
I aim to work with each client to offer a therapy which is tailor-made to fit my clients needs and wants [integrative counselling.]
I have always been strongly committed to my professional development and continue to attend workshops and training in order to extend my knowledge.
I am a registered member of BACP and as a committed professional I work within their ethical guidelines to ensure I practise ethically, effectively and safely. I engage in ongoing supervision with a registered counselling supervisor.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a postgraduate qualification from university in Integrative Counselling Practice. Prior to qualifying from university I achieved AQA Certificates in Counselling Skills.
I have worked in a number of different settings. Alongside developing a private counselling practice, I have worked for three days a week in a GP surgery since 2007. I have carried the responsibility for their counselling service largely on my own, which means that I have worked with an extremely broad range of clients who have presented with a wide range of issues and problems.
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.

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).
