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.

I have experience of working in many fields of emotional growth and development both in the UK and Abroad, over this time I have focused on ensuring that Individuals feel empowered to develop skills that bring about change. I have managed and led teams of Therapeutic Practitioners supporting young people, and Adults as well as families with complex needs. I also work with an older population that have been impacted by Health event related Trauma and Bereavement, including the effect of COVID.
I recognise that Therapy is not for everyone, and sometimes all that we want is a space to explore thoughts and feelings that we find difficult or challenging. My service can offer you that safe space and support you to put things in place that assist you in making sense of a world that can at times feel just a bit overwhelming.
