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).

Counselling for Children, Young People & Families
Do you feel your child or family could do with some extra support?
Sometimes young people can struggle with how they are feeling. This may be due to issues at school such as problems with friends, relationships at home and they may be feeling anxious, depressed, angry or scared and need to talk to someone. I can be difficult to talk to people they know so a counsellor can help them talk things through in confidence (unless they disclose that their personal safety is at risk).
How counselling can help young people
Counselling is the most common form of talking therapy. It can help young people deal with issues and events and the effects they are having on their mental wellbeing. Counselling could be recommended for young people who are basically healthy but who are struggling with a mental health disorder such as depression or eating disorders; it can address problems with anxiety, bereavement; bullying, anger, relationships, low self-esteem, and self-harm. A counsellor will help explore the problem, the symptoms and strategies for coping.
I have been working with young people and their families for over 20 years in a variety of settings as well as undertaking therapeutic work. When working with a young person and where ever possible it can be very helpful to involve the other important people in their lives such as their parents or carers. This isn’t always necessary and some young people want sessions to be 'just for them', therefore I offer a flexible approach in partnership with you to work out what is the best way to work through things to achieve a more positive outcome.
