Peter Scott BSc (Hons) MA MBACP
I offer a non-judgemental professional service, free from discrimination, honouring the individuality of each client. I believe that, regardless of counselling model, the counselling endeavour involves clients in undergoing a process of understanding themselves better, and being better equipped to cope with and develop their lives.

I have a wealth of experience working with young people and vulnerable adults to help them communicate their feelings by providing the necessary support, allowing them to challenge their own personal issues.

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
Being accepted for who you are, regardless of your thoughts, beliefs, feelings, values and behaviour is a liberating experience. It allows us to move through life with less concern about holding ourselves in check.
An important view of the counselling process is to help my clients tolerate their feelings, feelings that up to now have been too frightening, or too overwhelming to acknowledge. Self awareness is empowering as it enables each individual to reach inside themselves and actually listen to their feelings. It may be an intensely liberating experience or a very scary one, but I realise that each journey is unique and it is up to us when it begins and when it ends.
