Laura McKenzie, BA (Hons), Acreddited MBACP, MCIPD
Do you feel unable to talk to anyone about personal issues concerning you ?
My approach to therapy is down-to-earth, but at all times professional to assist you addressing any concerns or issues being experienced.
Taking the step to enter into therapy can be daunting, especially when there's a feeling that something isn't working in your life. Having to speak to a Counsellor about personal issues can sometimes feel exposing, but if conducted under the right conditions, the benefits of therapy can put you back on track.
My aim as a therapist is to offer you a safe, non-judgmental space in which you can work through whatever your concerns are.
Our work will begin with an initial appointment, that can be conducted on the phone . This will provide me with an opportunity to find out more about what is going on for you. At the end of this first appointment, we can agree on when to start work 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.
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.
