Aletheia Counselling And Psychotherapy - Catherine Davies BA (Hons) MBACP
My name is Catherine Davies and I offer a Cognitive Behaviour Therapy approach to understanding and then facilitating positive change. We can find ourselves in the same upsetting cycles of thinking and behaving that keep going around and around creating anxiety and depression. Together we can work out how to alter these cycles to promote necessary change and enhance well being. I believe in the positive benefits of being able to open up about personal concerns in a safe, confidential non-judgemental and nurturing environment.
I work with adults and teenagers over the age of 16 years. I am a member of the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies, The British Association For Counselling and Psychotherapy and the British Psychological Society. I adhere to the ethics of all these professional organisations.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychology and a Postgraduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy.
I have 7 years of experience volunteering for a local mental health charity. I have also worked for the past 4 years in Drug and Alcohol Addiction acquiring further experience in depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD and complex trauma.
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.
