My name is Philip Auty, and I am a qualified counsellor, and a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy).
My background is in Bereavement, and more recently working with Cancer and subsequent related issues. I have worked with every type of bereavement, including pre-bereavement work. However, along side this work, I have gained experience with other issues that have arisen during this process. They are listed below.
Anxiety, Anger Issues, Sexual/Emotional/Physical Abuse, All Bereavement Issues, Pre-Bereavement, Eating Disorders and Addictions, Bullying, Cancer, Depression, Eating Disorders, Family Issues, Low Self-Confidence, Low Self-Esteem, Miscarriage, Abortion,and Still Birth, Physical Abuse, Panic Attacks, Relationship Issues, Self Harm, Separation and Divorce, Sexual Problems, Sexuality Issues, Stress, Trauma, and Work Related Stress/Anxiety
Training, qualifications & experience
I studied at the University of Chester for a period of seven years, qualifying in March 2013.
I am a Qualified Counsellor, with a Masters Degree (passed with Honours) in Clinical Counselling,(accredited course), and a BA in Psychology and Counselling Skills (passed with Honours).
In 2009 I completed the Cruse Bereavement Care Foundation course (part 1&2), and I attend monthly training in bereavement work, and keep up to date reading relevant books, journals, and research papers. I endeavour to constantly work on my personal and professional development.
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.
