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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Counselling sessions for Individuals are charged at £45 per 50 minute session and for Couples Counselling at £50 per session.
EMDR Counselling starts with approximately three information/history taking sessions that last 50 minutes and are charged at £50 and then subsequent EMDR Processing sessions that last 1 hr 20 minutes are charged at £65 per session.
Supervision sessions are charged at £45 for 50 minute with 1.5 hour sessions available on request, Skype & FaceTime sessions are also available. Sessions are available during the daytime, evenings and weekends.
Sometimes a 50 minute face-to-face Counselling session may not be what you need and Trudy will discuss other contact options i.e. telephone/email/online counselling where appropriate.
I offer a very limited number of reduced fee sessions for counselling students and those who are unable to pay at the full rate. Please contact Trudy to discuss this and do not let finances get in the way of you getting the help you need. If Trudy is unable to offer you her services at this time she will do all she can to refer you to an appropriate colleague/service locally.
