At ABC I offer personalised, flexible talking, play and creative play therapy that is suitable for any child or young person (4-18 years) who is experiencing difficulties - whether it's mental health concerns, behavioral issues or a problem relating to family or school/college. The therapy is designed to help children feel safe and supported through their healing journey, and as I am also certified Autplay therapist, can also be very beneficial for children with neurological issues - such as ASD, PDA and ADHD.
The therapy room at Brent Knoll is fully equipped and includes a calming area, sand tray and sensory toys, as well as a more ‘grown-up’ area for older children. Initial assessments are free of charge and usually last around 30 minutes. Sessions are normally for 1 hour. But, please give me a call on 07535 673665 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.

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.

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).
