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.

Expectations of Counselling
The decision to seek out a stranger for counselling can be scary and intimidating.
In the first session, it is a chance for us to explore any concerns and this continues through our time together.
It is important thing to remember these are your sessions, and there will be regular opportunities to review your expectations, wants and needs- to ensure you are getting the support you need.
What I offer
In our first session we will have an assessment, where I can gather information about you, and your reasons for counselling.
Additionally we will create a working contract which will establish payment, date and time of sessions.
