Madeleine Rollason Reg. Member MNCS, MBACP Counsellor & Supervisor (Snr.Accred)
Due to the difficult times we are all facing through the coronavirus I now offer online therapy using a safe and secure system. if you would like to learn more please feel free to contact me
Thank you for visiting my profile, I know that it can be quite daunting to look for support particularly when you're feeling vulnerable and with so many practitioners to choose from.
Sometimes life can be tough, we can get confused, low or stressed and can't seem to find our way, it's at these times that counselling can be useful and help us understand our emotions.
I have many years experience in individual counselling, couple counselling and working with drug and alcohol misuse issues. I worked with Relate for many years as a counsellor, supervisor and trainer. In addition I worked in the alcohol and drugs field in the same capacity.
I am also a BACP Senior Accredited Supervisor of counsellors.
I now work as a private practitioner in the Bedfordshire area. If you would like to find out more about what I can offer please don't hesitate in contacting me.
What is counselling
Counselling gives you an opportunity to talk through your experiences to better understand your situation, my role as a counsellor is to support you in this process and help you to make sense of your situation enabling you to take back control of your life.
Counselling takes place usually on a regular weekly basis for an hour, and may be long or short term depending on your needs.

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.
