British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).

When I work
In the initial session we can discuss appropriate times to suit client/counsellor availability if none of the noted availability does not suit.
What to expect in the first session
Agreeing to and accepting counselling is a huge step forwards for many people. However it is a courageous one. Acknowledging there is a problem and talking through, and exploring ways to move forward, can produce some amazing and positive changes in your life. And further more create a deeper understanding, and awareness of the triggers which may have produced the issues.
I offer the initial session of 30 minutes for free. During this time I will listen to your story, to understand the need for counselling , I may clarify some of the information by asking questions. I will also enquire if this is the first time you have received counselling and so ask about your expectations from these sessions, if we go ahead.
