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.

Stillbirth and neonatal loss
Weekdays, evenings, and weekends
Do you sometimes feel anxious or depressed? Do you feel angry, frustrated, despairing, lost or alone? Does the way you feel about yourself, the world and other people, affect your confidence, your relationships and the way you live your life? Perhaps you feel isolated by the painful losses, trauma or abuse that you’ve experienced.
Counselling can help you find meaning to the way things are and explore ideas around what or who you feel you can or can’t be. It is an opportunity to talk openly with a trained professional who is not connected to anyone you know in a reliable, confidential and safe environment. Without judgement, I can help you reach an understanding of yourself and your life by making links to past experiences, and by us working together for you to find more satisfying ways of being.
