Erica Spencer Green. MBACP BA PgDip
Sometimes we struggle to understand issues that darken our days. I offer psychodynamic counselling which is a talking therapy that involves exploring both present and past aspects of your life.
As a counsellor I have worked with: depression, self-harm, retirement anxiety, exam/work stress, relationship breakdown and bereavement. My experiences, both personally and professionally, have involved working closely with diverse social and cultural considerations such as ethnicity, religion, sexuality, sibling rivalry and class.
I have 20 years previous experience as a personal trainer working with clients who wanted encouragement or support regarding issues including body image, ageing concerns, weight management and self-esteem.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified psychodynamic counsellor and an insured member of the BACP. I have also broadened my training through studies at The Minster, Tavistock Relationships, Confer, WPF Therapy and The Manor House Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling. It is part of my ethical approach to continue my professional and personal development whilst under regular supervision.
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).
