Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP
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.

Further information

Making the decision to engage in counselling can be a difficult one for many people. Often people feel that their issues are too insignificant to warrant seeing a counsellor, and fear feeling a fraud, or that they might be seen to be "making a fuss about nothing". Others can feel that their problems are far too big, that they might overwhelm the counsellor, or any other person that they might share them with. These are very normal feelings to have, and will be dealt with sensitively by a Professional Counsellor.

For most people, Counselling can be a positive way forward. Counselling can be used as an aid to Personal Development and greater Self Awareness. A means to help cope with a personal crisis, such as an accident, work stress, bereavement, redundancy or relationship breakup. It can facilitate the exploration of highly sensitive subjects, like child abuse or sexual issues, or be used to work with more ongoing difficulties, like depression, relationship difficulties, anxiety, phobias and stress.

A Senior Accredited Counsellor and Accredited Supervisor with the BACP, and counselling since 1995, I have many years experience of working with a wide range of counselling issues, including those listed above. I offer Face to Face and Telephone Counselling for Individuals, and Face to Face Counselling for Couples.
