Louise Willis. MBACP, MNCS (Accred)
Seeking Therapy can be a huge step, it may be the first time you have ever spoken about your problems and feelings.
Therapy provides an opportunity to talk about yourself and any concerns you have, in a way that often can’t often be achieved with friends and family.
You may be experiencing overwhelming feelings of confusion, anger, depression or be feeling scared, you may be finding it hard to cope.
Together we can:
- Look into the past for answers
- Work in the ‘here and now‘ to change repetitive behaviour
- Look to the future for making and setting goals

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.
