BACP

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy.

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Is your home life or work being affected? Are you unhappy at work, struggling to find work/life balance, have life issues that are affecting your role within the workplace? Is your relationship or family suffering, are you suffering? How do you manage your time? Is it difficult to talk to people at work about things bothering you? Counselling can help address these issues by exploring ways to help you create an improved way of life. Using a variety of techniques that will equip you with tools and strategies, you will be able to better manage potentially stressful situations.

Issues surrounding pregnancy and infertility? These include planned or unplanned pregnancy, stillbirth, miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, antenatal depression, postnatal depression, anxiety about becoming a mother or father, problems with conception, coming to terms with infertility, traumatic birth, decisions regarding termination, emotional and physical difficulties following termination of pregnancy, giving a child up for adoption, losing contact with a child following a relationship break up, or concerns about your partner being affected by any of the above.

Affected by another's addiction? It is often those close to an addict who suffer when the addict exhibits behaviours including physical, emotional and verbal abuse, deception, theft, denial, compulsive behaviours, obsessiveness, withdrawal, depression, low self-esteem and loss of control. This can lead to a huge number of difficult to handle emotions for the person close to and affected by the addict including anger, depression, anxiety, loss and grief. Parents, grandparents, siblings, friends and colleagues can all be affected.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
