Chris Garnett MA(Integ.Psy), Dip.CBT, Dip.Relate, Dip.Sup, MBACP(Accred.), UKCP
I am an experienced counsellor/therapist and supervisor working with individuals, couples and organisations. I have specialisms in addiction, anxiety, trauma and relationship counselling.
I started training as a therapist in 1999. I completed training as an integrative psychotherapist, and I have completed CBT training, RELATE training in couple counselling and Family Counselling. I am a BACP and UKCP accredited therapist, and a trained clinical supervisor.
My approach offers a range of ways of working depending upon the issues that clients bring, and includes short and long term work.
I work with clients in private practice and with referred clients from employment, statutory services, relationship and family counselling. I have experience of working for local agencies and organisations. These include alcohol agencies, a GP practice, NHS Psychotherapeutic Services and with Nottinghamshire Police. I have worked in the community as a family counsellor and as a supervisor to therapists in training.
Further information on my approach is available on my website at www.nottscounselling.co.uk

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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).
