Counselling and Psychotherapy BSc (Hons), MBACP

About me

My name is Sarah and I am a fully qualified and experienced Psychotherapist based in the small country village of Diseworth near East Midlands Airport. I work from home in a comfortable and confidential space, centrally located between Derby, Leicester, Loughborough and Nottingham, easily accessible via local transport links. Free onsite parking is available.

Life brings many challenges, and it is understandable that at times we might look for support in facing them. As a therapist, my role is to support you on your journey of self-discovery; to enable you to examine your life and make new, meaningful choices within it.

I offer a chance for you to reflect on the difficulties or problems you are experiencing in a safe and confidential environment, with someone from outside your day-to-day life. Together we can explore your situation in a way that leads to fresh perspectives – and perhaps a new understanding of yourself.

Counselling and psychotherapy is not about giving you solutions or advice, but empowering you to make your own changes.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Counselling & Psychotherapy – First class with honours (BSc Hons 1st Division) and am a full member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).

Member organisations

BACP

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.

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.
