Hello, my name is Darcie and I am a qualified counsellor who works within the Dudley area. I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and therefore I adhere to their code of ethics and guidelines to provide a safe environment.
I offer my clients a safe, non-judgmental environment to discuss their thoughts and feelings in a confidential manner. I do not criticise nor judge, instead offer an understanding ear to whatever issues which may plague you. Together we can work to help you feel the confidence in changing your life.
I counsel within a Person-Centred perspective which means my support is very much focused on what is beneficial to you. I don't claim to be an expert on how you can deal with the problems you face. But instead, I am here to help you find the solution which is best for you.
I work with a variety of subjects including;
- Depression and sadness
- Problems within the family
- Relationship troubles
- Low confidence/ self esteem
Training, qualifications & experience
- 1st Class degree in Counselling Psychology
- Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
- Diploma in Counselling Skills (Level 3)
- Certificate in Counselling Skills (Level 2)
- Online Counselling: A coronavirus primer - CPD award
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 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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
