Member organisations *
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
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.
Areas of counselling we deal with
New Malden Counselling Associates are committed to offering affordable counselling. With this in mind, there is a sliding scale of fees based on ability to pay.
The standard fee per session is £45. This may be reduced to £30-£35 for clients whose income is below average. For those who are unwaged or on a very low income, the fee is likely to be in the region of £25 per session. Should your financial situation change during the course of counselling, fees are subject to review.In cases of particular financial hardship, and in exceptional circumstances, an individual client may be able to have a limited number of sessions at £25 (or below) subject to counsellor availability.
The fee for the initial consultation is £30. In order to confirm the appointment, we require this fee to be paid in advance.Cancellations are chargeable unless at least 48 hours’ notice is received at least one week in advance.
Currently, cheques and cash are the preferred method of payment.
