Bernie Bane BA(Hons), MBACP (Accred) Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy
I qualified as an Integrative Counsellor at Mary Ward Centre in 2005 and went on to obtain a BA (Hons) in Counselling from University of Greenwich in 2012. I am an accredited member of BACP.
My experience working as a counsellor and in the charity sector has given me the opportunity to work with adults and young people from a variety of different backgrounds. I have supported people experiencing relationship difficulties, identity issues, sexuality issues, domestic violence, survivors of rape & sexual assault, people living with HIV, drug users, people suffering from depression and anxiety, people who are self-harming and people who have attempted or are at risk of suicide.
I see therapy as a co-operative venture between therapist and client and I endeavour to provide a warm, collaborative and non-judgemental space for you to explore the issues that are important to you. I will seek to see you and understand you as a whole person, connected in mind, body, spirit and heart. Through this I hope to support you in accepting and understanding yourself as a whole person, with the power and freedom to make choices.
The integrative model I work with focuses on the importance of relationships and is based on the belief that as human beings we can grow and develop in relation to others. I combine and use several different models of counselling, such as attachment theory, psychodynamic and person centred approaches (learn more about these here: http://www.itsgoodtotalk.org.uk/what-is-therapy/types-of-therapy). This allows me to meet the needs of each individual and to work with the focus that best fits the person.
I work in private practice at the Spiral Centre on Monday evenings and Friday afternoons. Please see the contact page for further details.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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

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).
