Why do people come for counselling?
Many people experience all sorts of difficulties in their lives. These might include personal relationships, situations at work or problems at home.
When we face these difficulties it may be helpful to work with a counsellor to find ways of understanding what you are experiencing.
Our counselling service offers psychological support for a variety of problems including depression, anxiety, traumatic life experiences, relationship difficulties, bereavement, a concern with sexuality and identity, emotional concerns with disability or living with a long term medical condition, mental health issues, career and life changes a well as life events past and present.
How can counselling help?
Your counsellor will provide you with a non-judgmental and confidential space for your to explore your challenges and your thoughts.
The relationship with your counsellor might help you to explore further your experience which may lead into a deepening insight into patterns of behaviour, past and present relating and emotional difficulties.
Training, qualifications & experience
Mind In Enfield and Barnet is a register and Accredited charity with British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and we work in line with the Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
Mind in Enfield and Barnet provides a confidential service. The identity of our clients is protected. Our clients can speak freely knowing that everything they say during counselling sessions stays within the counselling service.
We will consult with our clients before involving anyone else in their care. Disclosure may be authorised by client consent or the law. Where we are legally required to disclose information, we will discuss this in detail with the client at the assessment stage of the counselling process.
Exceptional circumstances may prevent the counsellor from seeking client consent to a breach of confidence due to the urgency and seriousness of the situation, for example, preventing the client causing serious harm to self or others. In such circumstances the counsellor has an ethical responsibility to act in ways which balance the client’s right to confidentiality against the need to communicate with others.
Member organisations *
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.
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
