Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

Further information

The no obligation, first counselling meeting (for which the fee is payable) is an opportunity for us to meet and exchange information. Information can be explored so that you are clear about the contract that will be in place in order for the work to proceed. In this meeting I will ask you about your background and what your expectations are of therapy. This information will be treated as confidential. Decisions to continue or terminate our work can be taken at this stage.

Sessions last for 50 minutes; this is your time to discuss your issues, whatever is worrying you, in your own way. You are free to disclose as little or as much as you feel comfortable with. Ideally we meet once a week, particularly at the start of counselling when we are getting to know each other. At a later stage some clients choose to come fortnightly as they begin to feel the benefit of the therapy.

I offer the opportunity to explore thoughts and feelings in a confidential, non judgmental environment with the aim of helping you to improve the quality of your life and relationships.  The therapy I offer enables thoughts, feelings and problematic behaviours to be explored, to help make sense of difficulties so they can be better understood and resolved.

I also offer consultancy and training in delivering groupwork programmes.

I deliver training in: Effective Communication; Emotional Wellbeing; Anger Management; Weight Management; Assertive Skills; Managing Conflict; Self Esteem; Stress Management; Parenting Skills.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
