The National Counselling Society

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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.

Please contact us to enquire about counselling. We currently have a 1-2 week waiting list for self-funders and 4-6 week waiting list for funded clients.
You will have a free telephone assessment first.
Then you will be matched with the best counsellor for your needs.
We will confirm the appointment date and time and you will be emailed the contracts, payment methods and where to find us.
When you attend your first appointment you will be greeted and asked to sign in (first name only) and then you will meet with your counsellor.
The first session is getting to know each other and see if you can work together.
Counselling is a safe pace for you to talk about whatever you want to, no matter how big or how small you think it is. It is a space where there is no judgement, with someone who can be objective and empathic. Counselling helps you work through your feelings your thoughts and can help you to make sense of what’s happening for you/your family in the here and now. It is a safe and confidential environment; your counsellor will help you to feel comfortable to talk about anything and everything. Your counsellor is not there to tell you what to do or share personal experiences as it is about you. It’s your time to focus on you. However, your counsellor can help you to look at options if that’s what you want, or your counsellor can listen and help you to be in the moment.
