Member organisations

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 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 focus of my work is to help you achieve greater awareness, which will offer you more options for the future (so that you don't end up doing the same old things/patterns within your relationships, at work, and how you get angry). This brings about change in your life.

Some client feedback:

  • "What I got from the work "A new me, A new beginning, A new start"
  • "It helped me understand so many things that I never really understood before."
  • The biggest change was "Looking within me for the answers. I have always relied on others to tell me what to do".
  • "You taught me how to finally trust myself and that is so empowering"
  • "I can recommend this type of work because "It gets to the core issues"

Some group feedback:

  • "I thought it was great, experientially informative"
  • I enjoyed "The experiments and learning about myself but also hearing others"
  • I enjoyed "The experiments and environment"
