Rachel Golding Registered Member MBACP (Snr. Accred.)
I am an integrative counsellor with over 15 years experience. I am particularly influenced by Psychodynamic and Person Centred models.
I offer both long and short term therapy and have worked with a wide variety of issues and clients.
My therapy room is based in Apsley, Hemel Hempstead. There is free parking available for an hour. The room itself is comfortable and discreet, offering you a safe space. I also offer online and phone sessions.
In the first session, we would discuss what you are hoping to get from therapy and reasons for coming. We would also outline key details of the therapy such as confidentiality, payment of fees and cancellations which all help to begin building a trusting relationship. It is also an opportunity to explore whether you feel you would like to work with me.
I am a senior accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I am bound by their code of ethics. I attend regular supervision to ensure good practice and maintain ethical standards.

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.
