My name is Cynthia Gentle.
I am a registered member of BACP and I offer face-to-face Integrative Psychotherapy.
I value honesty, individual difference, and the courage it takes to enter counselling and the impact of processing personal issues.
I am empathic and approachable and I strive to provide a caring and safe service so you can feel confident in sharing your thoughts and feelings in a non-judgmental and confidential way. Please email me in the first instance, and I will respond within 12 hours.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a diploma qualification in Counselling/Psychotherapist. I am registered with the BACP, currently working towards accreditation.
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.
