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.

Through my years of counselling, I have had the pleasure of seeing my clients start to believe in themselves, grow in confidence and have faith in their abilities. This is the best part of my job. My success rate is extremely high because I tailor the therapy to suit you and your needs. Offering a none judgemental perspective and approach helps my clients to feel free to explore their emotions in safety.
Low self esteem can effect people of all ages and walks of life. This is an issue I see a lot of in my counselling work. It is so rewarding to watch someone grow during therapy.
Helping young people to express how they feel is a part of my counselling role. Facilitating their ability to engage and move forward in their life is particularly rewarding. School and college days can be so stressful for our young people, I provide a safe space for them to air their feelings and concerns.
Survivors of trauma and abuse come to counselling to work through their experiences and move forward to a better quality of life. It can take a lot of courage to tackle an experience of trauma. I find it an honour that people choose to trust me and let me help them through their struggles.
