Clare Lackenby, BA (Hons) Degree in Counselling. Registered member of the BACP
Hi there, first of all I would like to say thank you for taking a look at my profile. My name is Clare and I am an all round eclectic counsellor who is passionate about supporting people on their counselling journey. At Future Phoenix Counselling I offer clients a safe place for exploration and transformation. I see counselling as a process of discovery of our real authentic Self. A journey towards living your life to its full potential.
Working as an eclectic counsellor basically means that I use different elements of counselling theory to create an exploratory way of working with clients. I work with clients’ present day experience, using a wide range of creative methods to allow deeper discovery and understanding of self.
As a counsellor for me the experience of seeing a person walk away lighter, freer, and excited to live their own personal journey after healing from wounds, disorders, and obstacles in their path is so rewarding. There is nothing better than seeing a client being alleviated from emotional, psychological, spiritual or relational pain.

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).
