Christopher Cooper Registered MBACP, Dip. Integrative Counselling.
I offer a confidential and safe therapeutic environment for you to explore and process the difficulties you are facing, at your own pace.
My aim is to support you in achieving your best possible outcome, encouraging you to develop yourself and your relationship with others. Accordingly, I strive to utilise my knowledge and experience to facilitate this in a productive and effective way.
I am a registered member of the BACP and work in an integrative way. This means I can offer a wide range of services including working with clients experiencing many life events and emotions including depression, anxiety, low mood, anger, self-esteem, bereavement.
Training, qualifications & experience
Post Graduate Diploma in Integrated Counselling
Certificate in Counselling Skills
I have previously worked as a counsellor within an NHS GP surgery.
I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), and therefore work within their ethical and professional framework.
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.

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).
