Keren Richardson - Counsellor and Supervisor (BACP Accredited).
Hi, my name is Keren. A warm welcome to my web-page. I have over ten years experience counselling children, young people and adults. I provide a confidential space where you can be heard and understood. You can talk about whatever is on your mind and we can reflect on it together. It could be about past or present issues that are bothering you, such as: bereavement, anxiety, depression or relationship issues. Together we can explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences, to help you make positive changes in your relationships and life. I have the fullest commitment to offering a service which is welcoming to all backgrounds in a supportive and non-discriminatory manner. I am open to negotiating a cost that is more affordable to you, if necessary. I can offer online or face to face (when safer).
What to do next
If you would like to find out more, please email or call me to set up an initial meeting free of charge. This gives us an opportunity to discuss what you want from counselling sessions and how I can help. If you decide you would like to continue, we can arrange further sessions together.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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).
