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.

Areas of counselling I deal with
You can contact me in whichever way suits you best. After that, if you wish to, I will arrange to see you for an introductory session. This gives you a chance to find out what I am like, and to experience how counselling with me might feel. You can also ask any questions you may have. It gives me the opportunity to get some idea of what you are seeking and how best I can help you achieve this.
There is no obligation to continue in ongoing sessions at this appointment if you do not feel comfortable.
Each session lasts for 50 minutes. However our initial meeting may take a little longer.
I charge a flat rate fee of £50 per session.
I have practiced in both the statutory and voluntary sector in Leicester and Nottingham working face to face with men and women. I have spent 5 years working with victims of Rape, Sexual Assault and Childhood Sexual Abuse. I have a vast amount of experience working with trauma currently working in the voluntary sector with women that have multiple and complex needs. Having worked alongside the police and CPS delivering therapy to victims going through court proceedings i am aware of the importance of pre-trial therapy a work with clients in slightly different ways pre and post trial.
