BACP is the main professional body responsible for counsellors in the UK.
As an accredited British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) psychotherapist my practice has been assessed to meet the BACP’s “higher standard as a competent, ethical and independent practitioner”.
As an ‘integrative therapist’ I use the most appropriate therapeutic approach for each client (rather than following a prescribed single theoretical model).
I often draw on aspects of the following theories: CBT (cognitive behavioural), humanistic, integrative, interpersonal, person-centred, psychodynamic, relational.
I am governed by the BACP ethical and professional standards. These are designed to ensure that counsellors always ensure the safety and wellbeing of their clients.
As standard ethical procedure, I have monthly independent supervision to provide oversight of my work. This safeguards the interests and safety of my clients, whose identities are never disclosed.
