Susan Glass MBACP (Accred)
I am a BACP accredited counsellor with over 12 years direct counselling experience in a variety of settings. I draw from a wide range of models to find a way of working appropriate for each client.
Why come for counselling?
Most people are looking to move or change something in their lives and find themselves stuck for any number of reasons. Alternatively, they could be going through a crisis of some kind:bereavement, a life transition, relationships issues, an addiction, workplace stresses.
How counselling can help
Counselling sessions provide a safe, confidential space to explore issues, short or long-term, that may be tripping you up. Getting a different perspective can help you gain a better understanding and lead towards moving forwards.
In order for therapy to work it helps if the client and therapist like each other. The initial session is to explore your needs and to see if we think we can work well together.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
