Mags Gooding M.A MBACP (accred) **Free initial consultation**
I am a counsellor working with individuals, couples and also with young people. As an itegrative counsellor I utalise a variety of different models and approaches, working very much to suit the individual. Everyone is different and each person / couple will have different problems and different needs. I like to meet initially for a free half hour session in order to explore whether I am the right person for you. I believe the relationship between us is a key factor in determining a successful outcome.

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.
