John Bell (MBACP)
Hello, I am a qualified counsellor who is also a registered member of The British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). I provide counselling to anyone over the age of 18 in a safe non-judgemental space and I have experience in working with a range of issues which include anxiety, depression, addictions, self-esteem, bereavement, loneliness and family/relationship difficulties. Please feel free to contact me to discuss the counselling process further. You can also visit my website for more information. Click link in panel on right or visit johnbellcounselling.co.uk.
If you feel you need to talk to someone about the way you feel then please contact me to see if we can work together. There are many good counsellors out there and finding the right one for you is very important as the relationship is key to achieving your counselling goals.
I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

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).
