Nicole Wilkinson MBACP (ACCRED)
During this difficult time I am using Zoom to support my clients with online video sessions.
I have over 16 years experience working with a wide range of clients, including couples, children, young people and adults, offering warm, caring, counselling within an open, non-judgmental environment and will show clients self-help activities using Mindfulness and CBT, if applicable.
Sometimes it can be hard to talk to friends and family about what you are going through and how this makes you feel.
Counselling is a way of exploring your innermost thoughts and feelings in a safe, supportive, non-judgemental and confidential environment with a trained professional.
I offer you the space and time to make informed decisions about your life within a safe, trusting and accepting relationship.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an Accredited Member of BACP. I hold a Diploma in Counselling and an Advanced Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Practice and Couples Counselling and I also lecture in Counselling.
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.
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.
