Gerard Hughes MBACP
Hello, at this moment, your life may seem challenging, resulting in Anxiety, Depression, confusion and lack of energy. I'm here to focus on you, what is happening with you, reflect on your feelings and emotions, working towards a beneficial resolution for you.
By working together, my goal is to help you gain self-awareness and peace of mind around these concerns. If you feel you'd like to explore these current issues, I look forward to hearing from you.
I offer a confidential, safe place for you to talk about whatever is going on in your life, without being judged. It usually consists of hourly weekly sessions or whatever suits; to provide support for you at this present time.
Having made contact by email or phone, an appointment can be made to explore any issue which now seems difficult for you.

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 membership
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.
