JOY HAZLEHURST ... MBACP (Accred.)
The client is his/her own expert and my role is to help facilitate their healing and growth by listening with concern and without judgement within a safe and supportive environment. The client is encouraged to focus on themselves and to express their story plus feelings whilst I feedback what I notice, understand and sense enabling them to gain a greater understanding of themselves and discover new ways of coping with their difficulties. I'll offer information and coping strategies where appropriate.
Qualified in 2001, I have many years of therapeutic experience and hundreds of hours of continuing professional development behind me I trust that the client will draw out of me what they personally need for their own recovery and progression.

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.
