Susan Thomas MBACP Dip Couns
On line counselling available.
Talking to a professional in confidence may help you to understand and acknowledge the feelings you are experiencing and enable you to begin to move forward in your life.
My role as a counsellor is not to tell you what to do, but to help you explore your options in life and to gain greater self-awareness.
I aim to provide a safe, confidential and respectful environment for you to share and explore any emotional problems that may be concerning you.
I offer an initial meeting free of charge that will give you a chance to understand how our sessions would work and what to expect from counselling.
Training, qualifications & experience
Level 4 Diploma in Counselling Practice.
I am registered with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and I follow their code of ethics.
I have three years experience as a bereavement counsellor, and I also have experience of depression, anxiety and identity issues.
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.
