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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Individuals:£40.00 per one hour session.
Payment in cash or via PayPal please.
Some discretionary concessions for those of limited means.
Please be aware; once a session has been booked, if you are then unable to attend, please give me at least 24 hours notice. My standard practice is to charge for sessions cancelled at short notice.
I use a mixture of Person Centred, Existential, Gestalt and Cognitive Behavioural counselling, individually tailored to each client's unique needs.
I do not make judgements or tell you what to do; through working together at your own pace I will support you whilst you decide on your own course of action.
NB. I AM NOT CURRENTLY TAKING NEW CLIENTS.
