Jo Elliott, Dip.Couns, Member of BACP
As a Person-Centred counsellor, I welcome you and all that you bring, each time we meet. I know that every single person is different and needs different support throughout different moments in life. During our counselling sessions I will show you that regardless of what you think, feel and say, I can hold you in an unfaltering regard, with no judgements, a genuine care about you and your experience, and an honest reflection of the person I see in front of me. It is once we are in this place that you can safely process through the thing that needs attention, and we move to where that takes us. I trust that you know what you need to help yourself, and part of that might be you need me to facilitate a space where you can be you, notice what you notice, to help you on your journey.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have studied for three years to obtain a Level 5 Diploma in Person Centred Counselling, and I am a member of the BACP. Prior to this training, I have spent 15 years working with children and young people, in educational and residential settings. I embrace the person centred nature by truly believing my client to be the expert in themselves, and that with the right conditions offered, they have the ability to nurture that desire that is within us to know, understand and like ourselves just a little more.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
