Annette Lyons MA MBACP
I am a psychoanalytic psychotherapist in private practice. I have over 16 years clinical experience which includes working at St Thomas' Hospital, London and as a counsellor working with students in two university college counselling services. I follow the BACP code of ethics and practice and I have experience in working with a wide range of ages and cultural and religious backgrounds.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a foundation in Integrative Psychotherapy and a Diploma in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy & Counselling both from Regent's College, London. I obtained a Masters in Psychoanalytic Studies at Goldsmith's College and am continuing my psychoanalytic training with the Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research (CFAR).
I offer short and long term counselling/psychotherapy.
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.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
