Robert Fulton. Accredited cognitive behavioural therapist and psychologist.
I am an accredited cognitive behavioural therapist operating counselling services in Kilmarnock, the rest of Ayrshire & Glasgow. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, trauma, body dysmorphia, low self-esteem, self-harm, BPD and many other issues. I have also worked using mindfulness and schematic approaches.
I believe in open access to counselling and therapy services which is why I am attempting to run at the minimal possible cost to allow people of any income to begin the life-changing journey that CBT can offer. Don't hesitate to contact me to discuss your options.
Training, qualifications & experience
As well as a PG Diploma (SCQF level 11) in CBT & Groupwork I also have an honours degree in psychology.
British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies
The BABCP is the lead organisation for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in the UK.
Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the practice, theory or development of CBT. BABCP also provides accreditation for CBT therapists.
BABCP accredited members adhere to the Standards of Conduct, Performance and Ethics in the Practice of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies, and are willing to be scrutinised in this adherence as required.
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.

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).
