Vicki Craig BA (Hons) Counselling, MBACP
I am a fully qualified counsellor trained to work in a variety of ways on either a short or long term basis. I am insured and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), I adhere to their Ethical framework for the counselling professions.
Essentially, I believe that counselling is about making changes and that we all have the potential to achieve it. Sometimes life is challenging and, particularly at these times, it can be hard to believe that change is possible. Choosing the right therapist is an important decision - my hope is that we can build a therapeutic relationship that is unique to us but empowers you to make the changes you want.
We will talk about how best to meet your needs in our first session and review this regularly to make sure you are getting the most from our time together.

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.
