Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Further information

What happens in the first session?

In the initial Free telephone consultation, we will discuss your concerns and reasons for seeking therapy. This usually involves asking questions about your background and assessing your needs, as well as what you would like to achieve in therapy. It is also an opportunity to see if I am the right therapist for you, to ask any questions and to voice particular concerns. You are under no obligation to commit to working with me after the first meeting if you feel that I am not right for you.

How many sessions do I need?

If you decide to pursue therapy, a session usually takes place once a week. It depends on your personal needs and circumstances and what you want out of therapy. This can be discussed and negotiated with me in the initial consultation and reviewed on an ongoing basis.
