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
Other areas of counselling I deal with
I have lived and worked abroad in several countries and I have experience working with cross-cultural couples, or individuals and couples re-locating or re-located. I include English/Irish or English/Scottish here.
I work with couples experiencing difficulties co-parenting post separation or divorce.
I have experience working with older couples.
I have experience working with bereavement and loss, including divorce and separation.
I base my fees on means, starting with individuals from £65, and couples from £70 up to £120.
I always work with 1-3 assessment sessions which last 1 hour 15 minutes so that we can explore what you are bringing. I charge more for an assessment session as it takes longer than a regular 50 minute session.
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.
