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.

I can’t praise or recommend Thom enough. On a personal level he is a great person with a relaxing and interesting persona. On a professional level he is clearly very well researched in his field of expertise with a dept of knowledge which really helped me. When I first met Thom I had issues with general anxiety/health anxiety and often worried about ‘unrealistic’ things. Being a busy professional and having a young family this was a big risk to my career and family life (not good…). After trying medication which did very little for me I saw Thom’s website and decided to go and see him.
I was in quite a bad place when I first met him and after approximately 15 weekly sessions I have made a great ‘recovery’ and feel back to my old self again. Thom helped me to look at things from a different perspective and to anyone who doubts the power of therapy – try Thom !
Thanks again, and if I ever need any help in this area again you’ll be the first to know.

Thom,
Where to start?  My experience of therapy with you was perfect timing in terms of my 'journey in life'.  Your empathic, caring demeanour, your honesty and openness really helped me look at painful, raw stuff in a totally 'safe way'.
As you know, I'm also a therapist, and as such, have experienced 'good therapy' as well as 'not so good'.  You are certainly in the 'superb camp' (undoubtedly!), and as such a fabulous professional role model.
Thank you for sharing my tears and laughter.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Thom following my recent counselling sessions. I saw Thom around 5 years ago for a short period but needed to get further counselling mid way through 2013. I had no hesitation in finding Thom again. The last 6 months have been the toughest of my life for a variety of reasons and the way Thom has supported me can never be repaid. He listens, doesnt judge and, crucially, is honest enough to tell me the truth even if it is not always easy to hear. This honesty has been key in allowing me to address certain issues.
Thom instanty and without effort makes you feel relaxed and at ease. I can't recommend him highly enough.
Finally, Thom, thnak you so much for your time but particularly for seeing me at relativiely short notice last November. Words can't express how much that appintment in particular meant to me.
Many thanks and best wishes Thom.

Ok so i'm the one who never leads feedback but on this occasion i just have to make an exception!
Thank you Thom for your unbelievable patience and understanding.  I have given you so much grief over the past few months yet you have stuck by me giving me endless support and guidance throughout.  You have answered every single text message and email I sent you and frequently managed to fit me in for extra sessions whenever i needed them.
I am amazed at the topics of conversation between us, things i never imagined talking about especially with a man!
Admittedly i'm not where i need to be just yet but therapy for me has been quite intense and i'm grateful you respect and understand my need to take a break, at least for a while.  I honestly have no idea right now whether I will be able to return to face up to my inner torment but one thing for sure, should this be possible, there is nowhere else i would rather be.
Thank you so so much for my last amazing session which made me feel so good when you left me with no doubt that your door would always be open and that you would be there for me should i find the strength to continue.
In conclusion, you've taught me that i don't need to cope with life's difficulties and challenges alone and i can only re-iterate what others have said before me.
Until we 'hopefully' meet again, take care of my chair ........................
