Nic Perrins - BA Hons, PGDIP (MBPsS) (MBACP)
Thanks for considering me as a possible therapist - and taking the time to read this.
I’ve been honoured to be helping people on their journey towards mental wellbeing for several years now. I’ve experience of working in the NHS environment alongside GP’s and their patient's mental health concerns.
I'm not a life coach, I'm not an expert in your life. But I am educated and qualified to help you work through your thoughts and emotions - especially as they impact you in today's modern world.
Feel free to contact me. It would be great to have an initial chat, and we can make a decision whether or not to take things from there.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have an Honours Degree in Psychology and a Postgraduate Qualification in Psychotherapy and Counselling.
I adhere not only to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) code of ethics, with whom I am registered; but also the British Psychological Society (BPS) with whom I am also a member.
I focus on a person-centred approach with an emphasis on the integration of practices oriented towards resolution of trauma and associated learned coping behaviour.
Before we have our first session, we will have a brief introductory call to discuss how you are - what is troubling you - and how I could best assist.
As an outcome of this first call, I'll be able to advise a way forward - most likely contracting to work together for a minimum of six weekly sessions. After that, we can re-evaluate and chart the way forward together.
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
After our brief introductory call to discuss how I can best assist you. I typically charge per hour, which is a 45 to 50 min session.
Typically contracting for a minimum of six weeks, of one session a week. After that, we can re-evaluate and chart the way forward together.
