Alicia Drummond MBACP ACCRED
I am an Accredited Member of the BACP and I hold advanced CRB clearance for my work with adolescents. As a Humanistic Integrative counsellor I draw from a range of approaches to provide the right support for you and I offer a safe, non-judgemental environment where you can explore whatever problems you are facing.
I work with adults and teenagers on a one to one basis and I have undergone additional training in working with couples. My particular areas of interest and experience are teenagers, depression, anxiety, stress and low self-esteem.
I have been in private practice since 2010 and before that I worked for two years as a counsellor at The Rock Clinic in Brighton which receives referrals from GP’s and other Primary Care Services. Prior to that I was a counsellor at Brighton University and with Mid Sussex Counselling.
I work as a pastoral care consultant in over 100 schools around the UK helping them to create environments that promote emotional health and wellbeing.

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.
