Margaret (Meg) Harper
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy sometimes gets a bad press - it's a 'system', it's 'just a process you are put through' etc. My work is very different from that stereotype - it will be unique to you and your situation because it is underpinned by my person-centred approach. I may also draw on a range of therapeutic models, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Person-Centred Therapy and Positive Psychology when appropriate or use creative therapies such as Sand Tray work and Small World therapy. I have just begun using Walk and Talk therapy too as both my rooms are located very close to lovely areas to walk.
I have extensive experience of working with young people aged 11 - 18, as well as working with adults.

I am also a qualified counselling supervisor.

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.
