Member organisations *
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
Areas of counselling we deal with
As stated above our fees vary according to a person's financial means. Our minimum charge is £10 per session and the most someone pays is £75. Fees are agreed with our clients during their assessment. Our aim is to provide affordable, professional counselling to as many people as possible. For this reason we often have a long waiting list.

Due to the current situation with the Coronavirus we are offering online and telephone counselling only. We hope to resume face-to-face counselling when safety for our clients - and our team - allows.
We have good connections with many other areas of support such as an Independent Sexual Violence Advisor (ISVA), an Independent Domestic Abuse Advisor (IDVA) Rural Outreach Workers, GPs, Social Services, the Community Mental Health Team (CMHT), facilitators of the Freedom Programme and the Who's in Charge Programme.
