Louise Tunbridge MSc MBACP UKCP MIPD
Sometimes we all need to talk but struggle to find the right person to turn to. Those closest to us may not always be able to offer what we need. You may be experiencing relationship issues, anxiety, depression, panic, anger, bereavement, shame or another emotional distress, perhaps you have experienced abuse or harm?
This is where counselling may be helpful. Someone to listen to you without offering judgement or advice, someone who believes you know best what you need and who can provide you with a safe, confidential place to explore those needs.
I offer counselling to individuals and couples in Buckinghamshire and Central London and am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the U.K. Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I abide by BACP's Ethical Framework and the UKCP's Ethical Principles and Code of Professional Conduct.
My practice is based in Beaconsfield HP9, and I also have offices in the West End and the City. All locations have wheelchair access.

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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. 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).
