Effie Hicks, MBACP
I work as an integrative psychotherapist providing therapy in a friendly and supportive environment. My approach is psychodynamic, which means, it focuses on understanding unconscious processes. I believe in healing the whole person which includes mind, body and spirit.
It was the experience of having been a client myself and seen how much I gained from my own therapy, that inspired me to train and qualify as a psychotherapist. Even though making that first step is hard, it is undeniably a step towards healing. I will work with you and support you with an open mind, warmth and understanding as you heal, change and grow.
I can offer help with the following:
- anger management
- anxiety and stress
- cultural issues
- personal development
- sleep problems
- Jungian dream analysis
- play therapy (children).
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Masters degree in psychotherapy and healing and I am a registered member with the BACP.
I hold private and voluntary sector experience as a counsellor and psychotherapist
with both adults and children.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
