Phillip Skelton MBACP
Hello and welcome to the profile for Phillip Skelton.
I am a qualified Person Centred Therapeutic Counsellor and I adhere to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy Ethical Framework. www.bacp.co.uk/ethical_framework
The counselling I provide creates a safe, empathic environment and sensitive space for a person to explore and resolve personal difficulties and limitations they may be experiencing, and to move beyond them. It can also help to enhance your relationship/connection with yourself and others.
The Person Centred approach ensures that you remain empowered and that you choose the direction and pace during the therapeutic process. Your best interest is always held as the highest priority alongside fully respecting your right to confidentiality.
I believe that counselling can offer you the opportunity for positive change and growth, and helps you to deal with life’s challenges more effectively and confidently.
I can relate to the feeling that taking the first steps to talking about difficult feelings and situations, and choosing a counsellor may be daunting. However, as you are reading my profile suggests you have already taken the first steps in seeking the benefits of counselling.
Integral to the working relationships we develop is my commitment, respect and positive open-mindedness towards you.
I am also Director for Inner Resources Ltd, which provides high-level support for vulnerable adults, and young people who have social, behavioural and mental health difficulties. I also support the families of vulnerable people, especially in times of crisis and I am experienced in working with their extended professional network.

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

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).
