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.
Areas of counselling we deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
We offer play therapy for children aged 4 to 12 years.
We are a not statutory funded therefore we rely on grants and donations. This means we are a chargeable however, we endeavour to not turn anyone away if they are not able to pay the full amount.
Each counselling session costs us £45 to provide. We ask all clients, within our remit, to contribute as much as possible to this amount. If the service you require is not under our current subsided service you will be asked to cover the full cost of the session. This will be explained to you on you initial phone call and/or at your first session with your counsellor.
Our service is open Monday to Friday 9am until 8pm (6pm on Fridays)
We offer a drop in service on a Monday afternoon between 2pm and 5pm - last entry at 4:30 at the low cost of £5.
These sessions last 30 minutes but give you an idea of what counselling may be like. This is especially useful for young people.
