Anna MacKean MBACP, Young People and Adolescents
I am an Integrative (Humanistic) counsellor and as such consider the whole person - mentally, physically and emotionally. Counselling provides a space to talk to someone independently, confidentially and safely. It gives an opportunity to explore, and understand, feelings, thoughts, experiences and emotions which may be hidden, troubling or confusing without judgement, and with warmth and compassion. Working together enables the exploration of being your true self. Everyone has their own unique way of looking at the world which can impact choices and actions. Through self-awareness you can understand the causes of your concerns or triggers for your behaviour which can help lead to change. I use a range of therapeutic approaches to encourage clients to develop themselves, their relationship with others and to the world around them. This includes working creatively. I understand that everyone is unique and I work flexibly to suit the needs of the person I am working with. I offer open ended counselling, from a few sessions to longer term depending on what is needed and agreed. I am qualified to work with young people and adolescents.

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).
