Anna MacKean MBACP, Young People and Adolescents
- I am an Integrative (Humanistic) counsellor specialising in young people and adolescents from age 11-25. This is a time of change and challenge, both physically and emotionally. Counselling is a talking therapy and provides a space to talk to someone independently and confidentially. It gives an opportunity to explore, and understand, feelings, thoughts and emotions. I use a range of therapeutic approaches, including working creatively, which I tailor to the needs of the person I am working with.

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).
