MOIRA ANDERSON FOUNDATION
The Moira Anderson Foundation is a National Charity dedicated to supporting those affected by childhood sexual abuse. We support children and adults of all genders in whatever way we can. Some of the services we provide are:
Counselling and Therapies
- Counselling: Person Centred Counselling, Psychodynamic Counselling and Youth Counselling
- Therapies: Play Therapy, Art Therapy, CBT and Thought Field Therapy
All our counselling/therapies are offered on a one to one basis with a qualified therapist, either weekly or fortnightly.
On-going support is offered by our Client Support Workers. This is offered prior to counselling/therapy commencing.
Our weekly POP-IN gives you the chance to have a chat and a coffee with other people who use our service, in an informal setting. The POP-IN takes place every Wednesday from 12.30 – 2.30pm. If you wish to attend the pop-in please speak to a member of staff in the first instance.

Member organisations *
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.
