Ness Chapman BACP Accred. UKCP reg.
I am an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, which means that I take ideas and techniques from a number of psychotherapeutic models. At the core of my model is the relationship between the client and the therapist – you and I. In my experience, the relationship proves to be the single most important factor to a successful outcome, and research confirms this. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment with space and time to fully explore your choices, opportunities, issues, fears and difficulties, working together to achieve your goals.
My working model includes CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), EMDR, TF CBT (Trauma Focussed CBT) and my specialisms include Trauma, Addiction, Mental Health, including anxiety and Relationships, including self-worth and self value issues, working with individuals, couples and families.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy and I have been working in this field for over 20 years. I also hold a Diploma in Group and Individual Supervision and a Certificate in Group work.
I am currently undertaking EMDR training and working in this modality as part of my training.
I continue to be committed to a regular programme of continued professional development to increase my skills and knowledge. I undertake a minimum of 30 hours of additional Continuous Professional Development (CPD) annually to keep updated on the latest research results as well as new information in the field and current topics.
I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), and previously the Federation of Drug and Alcohol Professionals (FDAP).
Registered / Accredited
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.
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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
