BACP Accreditation

​The Accreditation status is awarded to a member who has achieved a substantial amount of evidence of learning and training and has been approved by the BACP.

BACP Register
The BACP Register is the first psychological therapists' register to be accredited under a new scheme set up by the Department of Health, and administered by an independant body, accountable to Parliment.



I offer a strict confidentiality service. 

I have a professional commitment to the BACP Ethical Framework.

Free 30 min

I offer up to 30 minutes free assessment/consultation by phone or in the studio. This gives an opportunity for questions and to determine whether or not this is a suitable service for you.​
