Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Further information

** Please be aware that  I Can offer face to face sessions as well as Skype and Phone **

If you are feeling lost, uncertain or are struggling to find meaning in life you may be feeling disconnected from yourself or from others. This loss of contact with yourself, your needs, beliefs and values, may erode your trust in your ability to form meaningful relationships and attain personal goals.

A therapeutic relationship can offer the opportunity to find renewed belief in yourself and in others. It can help to provide self confidence, enabling clearer decision making and the ability to begin to live life in a more meaningful and satisfying way. Trust is absolutely essential in this type of relationship and I offer security, sensitivity, warmth and support enabling you to build trust.

I have trained in and practice the person centred approach. This is based on the theory and philosophy of Dr Carl Rogers. My approach is non directive and non-judgemental,  My role is to walk beside you as we work together.
