Member organisations

BACP

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.

Further information

Testimonials from some previous clients:

"Your help assisted me through one of the most difficult periods of my life in a calm, friendly and relaxed manner. I have gone from being almost completely 'at the end of my tether' to a state where I feel much better able to cope with daily life. [I have] better insight into my behaviour and much better coping skills.  Your help was invaluable."

"Counselling has helped me to turn my life around and it has changed immeasurably."

"If I did not go to counselling I would not be able to move forward in my life. My sleeping has improved a lot, I'm more confident and not worrying so much, and I'm seeing things much clearer."

"Counselling has helped me to acknowledge the loss of my parents and the gap that created in my life. I'm more robust and I find it easier to manage difficult situations at work - which is particularly useful in my role as a manager."


"I have gained an understanding of myself and my outlook on my life has changed. Before counselling, I compared my life to others and viewed my own as negative. I now feel reassured and positive."

" It [counselling] has helped me cope with the saddest and most difficult time of my life. I feel stronger and able to live my life in joy."

"I have gained a a more positive outlook in life and am a more confident person. I can approach people with issues that I feel need resolving - disputes for example, and I am no longer scared to approach new challenges or try new things."

"I am less reclusive than I was before counselling - I am much more outgoing and have discovered hobbies and activities that I am both good at and enjoy. I am not reliant on drinking to 'enjoy' myself; this was an issue that I was really able to address in counselling."

"Many thanks for all your support and help; I now feel able to express my feelings more and not bottle up my emotions."


"I am a lot happier in myself since before counselling, and have got my confidence back. I've learned techniques of how to deal with difficult sitations and emotions. I enjoyed the process and the improvements made."
