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 offer a FREE initial assessment and 50 min sessions cost only £29 thereafter.
I am a member of:
- the British Psychological Society (BPS).
- the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I uphold the ethical standards of the BPS and BACP and I am a registered counsellor with the Professional Standards Authority.
I request a commitment to regular sessions if you decide to proceed further, after the initial assessment. The initial assessment is an opportunity to get to know each other, for you to decide if you can work with me and for me to decide if I am able to help you. If I don't proceed with you for any reason I will recommend another counsellor for you.
