Beverley Bruce Registered Member MBACP
I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, having worked with individuals on a wide range of issues for over ten years.
I am trained in humanistic and psychodynamic approaches as well as embodied and spiritually orientated perspectives, and coaching techniques. I have recently submitted my doctoral research thesis for the award of Professional Doctorate in Psychotherapy with the University of Edinburgh.
As a Registered Member of The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, I am bound by their Ethical Frameworks for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist with an MA(Hons) from the University of St. Andrews and a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling from the University of Edinburgh. I am in the final stages of the Professional Doctorate in Psychotherapy with the University of Edinburgh and expect to be awarded this in late 2019/early 2020.
I have undertaken extensive training and development in humanistic, psychodynamic, and transpersonal theories and approaches to counselling and psychotherapy, which also incorporate spiritual perspectives and ecopsychology in pathways to healing. I am also a highly experienced embodiment therapist and trained bodyworker, and offer integrative therapeutic approaches incorporating these practices and perspectives when appropriate.
I am committed to professionalism, and regularly attend continuing professional development trainings and events to enhance my therapeutic offerings and to keep up-to-date with the latest research findings.
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.
