Angie Saunders Registered MBACP (Accred)
Hello my name is Angie Saunders, I'm a BACP accredited Counsellor and I run my counselling practice from Laurels Healthy Living Centre in South Tottenham.
I offer individual clients long or short term counselling depending on a client's presented issues. As an integrative counsellor I integrate various theoretical approaches within my practice, Humanistic, CBT or Psychodynamic as I feel each individual client is unique in their own experience, and so tailor my approach accordingly.
The counselling relationship is built on trust and is fundamental to the counselling process.I offer a non-judgemental and a confidential environment, that enables us to explore your thoughts and feelings in a safe place
Finally I adhere to BACP guidelines of good ethical practice, and continue to develop personally/ professionally, through ongoing training and regular counselling supervision.

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.
