Tim Savage MBACP (Accred)
In today’s world, pressure and expectation can feel overwhelming. Perhaps you're going through a tough time and feel you're unable to cope. Whether it’s trouble with relationships, family, work, or dealing with who you are, life is full of challenges. Counselling can help you to manage things and the world around you.
Training, qualifications & experience
As an experienced psychodynamic counsellor registered and accredited with the BACP, I have the expertise to help you explore your past, present and future.
My initial training was in working with adults but more recently I have studied to work with children and young people, and on top of a private practice I also counsel in secondary schools. I'm fascinated by how our early experiences affect how and who we are in the present, and the influence the unconscious has on our lives.
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.
