Member organisations

BACP

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.

Further information

Having received counselling myself over 20 years ago, it was life changing for me, I had many issues and found myself going from one bad relationship to the next and I was diagnosed with depression, I had hit rock bottom and that is when my own journey to recovery began. I am so thankful that I went to counselling ! Thereafter I had a passion for helping others and got involved in doing charity work as a mentor for Bolton Lads and Girls Club and also donating my time to help troubled families, working for the charity Home-Start UK. Tragically, I then lost my beloved daughter in an accident and my life once more hit rock bottom, it was one of the worse times of my life and I was diagnosed with PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) so back to counselling I went and I also found much healing, not only through my counselling but also through having Reiki and practising Mindfulness. I knew the day after I had lost my daughter that I was going to train to become a counsellor, I want to help others and I can empathise and understand that life is not always easy.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
