Hayley Bambrough - Therapeutic Counsellor
I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor working from counselling rooms based in the centre of Chippenham, Wiltshire. I also offer an online counselling platform for those who may be further afield or unable to travel.
Open Couch is a professional, confidential counselling service working with young people and adults, and is open to anyone in need. At Open Couch you are at the heart of everything I do. As a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy I work within a specific set of ethical guidelines for good practice so you can be assured that your safety and best interests are at the forefront of our work together.
Here at Open Couch I work with you to access the 'real you' - that authentic self which can often get 'left behind' as other things take priority; for some people this can be a quick process and for others it can take a lot longer. Whatever your needs, and wherever you're starting from, counselling can be a source of comfort, support and safety to enable you to decide who you are, what you want and where you want to be.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and am a registered member with BACP.
I work as a volunteer counsellor for a local counselling agency offering both short term and open-ended therapeutic work for clients and have taken on clients with them for a number of years. I also take referrals from organisations and have worked with schools and government contractors.
I undertake regular continued professional development training to support my counselling work.
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.
