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

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).

Areas of counselling I deal with
My fees are £35 for a 50 minute session, initial assessment can be done over the phone for free these will take roughly 15 minutes, within this time you will be able to discuss your problem and I will talk you through the counselling process. Hopefully this will put you at ease of what will happen. Once this is done you can decide if you want to continue with the counselling sessions with me and we can then book in a session. After the initial appointment, a £20 deposit is required for further bookings I understand there is a lot of choice out there to pick from, I guess the most important thing is you find a counsellor that you will feel comfortable working with, so we can see if we are the right fit when we have the assessment.
Concessions offered for
I’m a member of the BACP and I work by the ethical framework that the have produced. I will continue with learning with CPD courses covering all areas of counselling. I undertake supervision once a month in-line with the ethical framework.
