Member organisations

BACP

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.

Further information

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email me or leave me a voice mail, I would be happy to talk with you more. There is more information on my website; www.victoriatherapy.co.uk

If you would like to meet, I suggest 1-3 initial meetings to explore whether we can work together before you commit to weekly therapy. These sessions will be slightly longer than an average session so that I can form a good picture of what you are bringing which will form the basis of our work together.
