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.

Testimonials; How people experience counselling with me

Seeing Roz has been an amazing journey, I have found my true self worth, helped me realise who I am and that I deserve so much more than what I was receiving. Roz helped me work out how to get where I am and believe in myself. I don't think anyone else could have helped me get here, Roz is a kind and caring soul with so much knowledge and experience. I never felt that she judged me, she listened to my every word and I felt stronger after spending even just an hour with her, she helped me deal with difficulties from my childhood which impacted on how I feel about myself today. I feel at peace and will trust myself now. We all need guidance and support in our lives when we feel lost, and Roz will help you reach your goal as she has me, more than she will know.

I've struggled for years with my problems and never known how to deal with them! I tried 6 different counsellors over the years and always ended up feeling the same - these people don't get me, they can't help and this isn't for me. Roz has been an absolute godsend for me. I knew from the very first session she was different and left that day with a real sense of optimism.
She was a total breath of fresh air and I can't begin to describe how different I feel and how much better my life is. Roz has helped me so much. Work is better, relationships are better, life is better, I'm better! I've been on an amazing journey of self discovery and can honestly say (at 31 years old) I finally feel alive, I finally feel I can become who I'm supposed to become. I could have never imagined writing that last sentence months ago. I can only thank Roz so, so much for all of her help and without any doubt say I'd recommend her to anyone.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
