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.
Accredited register membership

Areas of counselling I deal with
Individual client £55 per 50 minute session
Couples £70 per 50 minute session
I work with clients on a holistic basis as I believe that this view of health is vital. Life is about balance and this means being aware of how you take care of yourself or how you ignore the little signals your body gives you until you have to listen. This means being aware of how you currently deal with stresses and how this helps or hinders your overall ability to live the life you would like. I believe that counselling can offer you this arena to explore your life in detail and to make the changes you would like within a supportive environment.
