Member organisations

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.

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).

Further information

Our Equine sessions are based at Parkmill farm in Kingswood, Wotton-Under-Edge. It is a beautiful setting, very peaceful and private. We tend to hold sessions regardless of the weather and encourage you to wear appropriate clothing accordingly. We use a lot of mindfulness and nature connection to help us feel more grounded and regulated to work safely with the horses. The horses are mindfulness in action and help us to feel more present and able to feel and express ourselves safely. 
Our sessions involve grooming, handling, and forming relationships with the herd. If you have any more questions please book an introductory call and we would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
