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).

Registered Member of the BACP
Not everyone who would benefit from counseling has the means to access affordable services, with this in mind I am currently offering sessions of 50 minutes on a weekly, fortnightly and monthly basis. My current fee is £45 per session. I can offer concessions to students, senior citizens, people on low income/wages and to individuals who wish to engage in long term therapy
I am currently offering an initial assessment (consultation) of up to 1.5 hours (90 minutes) for £30, this to help you decide if counselling or psychotherapy is for you and whether you would like to work with me.
I am comfortable exploring issues relating to sex, sexual orientation, gender, suicidal thoughts, identity, family issues, religion careers and bullying (my work is not limited to the above).
