Audrey Goodwin - Mulberry Counselling
Mulberry is a warm, professional counselling service that will work with you to understand your issues and help you explore your best way forward. Counselling is a very personal, individual experience that is different for everyone. Our work will be based on gaining good understanding of you and your issues and tayloring your counselling to meet your needs.
I have special interest and experience working with anxiety, stress, low self-esteem and relationship issues. I also work with loss and depression.
Appointments can be arranged at short notice, with times to suit your availability, including early evening and weekend appointments.

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 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.
