Maxine Hoskins MA, MBACP (Accred).
I believe we all have, in ourselves, the ability to work through our own problems; sometimes we need support to do it. Talking through emotional turmoil, life experiences or life changes can help you gain clarity and a better understanding of yourself.
Whether you are feeling depressed, anxious, angry or frustrated or if you are struggling in your relationships. What would it be like to talk to someone who will listen without judging you or offering you advice?
Counselling and Psychotherapy can be an inspiring life experience or solution focused to help you through a particularly difficult time.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Masters degree in Contemporary Therapeutic Counselling from the University of Hertfordshire and I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
My experience includes working within an NHS Community Mental Health Team as well as for HM Prison Services, in private practice and teaching on counselling skills courses to diploma level.
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.
