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
All single counselling sessions are currently £30 for 60 minutes or £100 for four sessions if paid in advance.
Payments can be made by cash, cheque or by bank transfer on the day of the counselling.
Concessions may be available dependant on circumstances e.g. students, please ask.
Counselling is available during the day, evenings or Saturdays.
Counselling sessions are available in Rainham or Gillingham where car parking is available. Both buildings are within walking distance to mainline railway stations.
As I may be with a client prior to your session time it is appreciated if you could arrive near to the time agreed time.
