Jacky Thomas MBACP
I am an experienced counsellor, having worked in schools, bereavement centres and counselling agencies, and now as a private practitioner offering counselling to adults, young persons and children experiencing a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, loss and low self-esteem. I also offer relationship counselling to couples and families.
I also provide a Supervision service to counsellors and student counsellors.
I am accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and am based in Plympton, Plymouth. I trained in the Person Centred approach to counselling but draw upon other counselling models such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Gestalt, Body Work and Mindfulness.
I offer my clients an opportunity to enhance their wellbeing through offering a safe, confidential and non judgmental place to explore what is troubling them.
It is important to me that my clients are the centre of all my work and I believe that my client is the one who has the answers to all their worries and issues and am experienced in helping them to find clarity which might not be available to them.
I offer day time and evening appointments between 10am and 8pm.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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

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).
