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.

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).

“I began my sessions with Nancy after a few months of a persistent low mood and feeling like I was struggling to cope with the ups and downs of life.
I’d never had any counselling before and wasn’t really sure what to expect or how helpful it would be for me. Nancy was always kind and patient, but encouraged me to make some changes in my life — in particular with a difficult situation with friends.
She also helped me to feel more confident being “me!”
Although I know things won’t always be perfect or easy, I feel much more equipped now to get through the trickier moments in life … and also more able to relax and enjoy living in the moment, particularly when I’m with my kids.” A.L
“Counselling helped me hugely, helped me overcome my past situations. Learned how to let go and deal with certain parts of my life. Gained the confidence I once lost.
Nancy was brilliant and very welcoming which made me feel at ease. I would recommend counselling to everyone, it certainly helped me.” K.B
