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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
I have a personal understanding of endometriosis and the realities of this painful disorder. This condition has led me to be more compassionate and understanding and that acceptance can be an emotional trauma.
I have a special interest in pet bereavement and having experienced a recent loss myself, my own grief acted as a catalyst to me becoming a pet bereavement counsellor, as I struggled to find support due to the lack of provision offered locally.
A pet is often at the centre of a loving family and can bring joy in so many ways. However, the loss of a pet can be heart breaking for the whole family. Sometimes, we are left not knowing which way to turn.
