Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

Clarity’s approach:                             
Clarity uses a Integrative approach to help tackle the difficulties you may be experiencing. We utilise a wide range of therapeutic interventions such as Interpersonal, Humanistic, Person-Centred, CBT, DBT, EMDR and Schema Focused Therapies. Therapy can help you to change how you think and what you do, leading to shifts in emotions. These changes can help you feel better and enable you to lead the kind of life that is rewarding to you.

Together with your therapist you will learn to recognise the sort of errors of reasoning and thinking that maybe troubling you. By helping correct these errors and substitute more helpful thoughts and assumptions you will be able to develop the coping strategies to move forward. During treatment, your therapist will help you to learn how to challenge your irrational thoughts and to change your negative assumptions.

  There are a variety of ways of doing this and together you will identify the one that suits you best. This can sometimes be a slow and difficult process and might involve taking some risks to test your beliefs and ideas in order to determine how realistic they are. The benefits and rewards of learning how to control your life and problems will almost certainly compensate for the hard work that may be involved.

As you gradually eliminate the distortions in your thinking and behaviours you will begin to feel differently and develop an increasing confidence in your ability to handle situations in your life that previously caused difficulty.
