Member organisations *
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.

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).

Areas of counselling we deal with
The fee for our Associate Counsellor Service is £45 per session. Each counselling session will last for 50 minutes, and will take place on the same day, at the same time, with the same counsellor each week. Appointments are available during the day or evening and take place at our premises in Starbeck, which are accessible to people with disabilities.
We also have an Affordable Counselling Service where we ask you to contribute a fee you feel is affordable to you.
Our Associate Counselling Service and Affordable Counselling Service offer two different waiting lists. The ACS one is inevitably shorter at 1-2 weeks whilst our affordable list is 3-4 months.
Please contact us to request self-referral forms. The info you give us in these helps us allocate you a counsellor suited to your needs. If you are a Christian and would like to see a Christian counsellor, please specify this on your form.
Once you have returned the completed forms to us, we will contact you as soon as possible with a suitable appointment.
