Lynne Bargewell MBACP (Senior Accred.) Counsellor & Supervisor
I qualified in 2002 with an MA in Counselling from Durham University. I worked in the NHS in Primary Care for 18 years delivering counselling in GP surgeries.
I established a Private Practice in 2004 and became one of the founding Partners of Durham Therapy Centre in 2011. Until the start of the pandemic I have worked from here on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. For the time being, until it is safe to work face to face, I am offering therapy from home through video call, by telephone or by email exchange.
Everyone needs something different from the therapy space. I believe at the heart of the work is the need for you the client to feel safe, heard and not judged and for you to experience me as being real. This then creates an environment for you to make sense and to work through the problems that you have been experiencing.
I offer you a safe, soulful space to do the work you need to do.

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.
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).
