Training, qualifications & experience

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.

Concessions offered for
I listen attentively and work with issues brought by clients, exploring, encouraging engagement and client's ability to feel confident and safe to raise issues. This is vital in helping client trust in the therapist as well as ensuring good transition into the work. Through exploration and understanding of key issues, I raise awareness and with joint effort of client and counsellor, resolve symptoms and achieve greater understanding and wellbeing. I work in a manner that ensures all clients are treated respectfully and equally regardless of race, gender, religion, presenting disability and issues. I achieve high rates of client satisfaction.
