What does MBACP mean?

MBACP indicates that I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

The BACP Register is a public record of counsellors and psychotherapists who meet or exceed the recommended minimum quality standards. These standards cover training, supervision, continuing professional development and a contractual commitment to the BACP's Ethical Framework.

It was the first psychological therapists' register to be accredited under the Professional Standards Authority's accredited register programme. This government-backed scheme aims to protect the public by helping them to choose health and care professionals who are competent and trustworthy.

The terms and conditions of the BACP Register indicate that I have to recommit every year to the following:

  • That I have adequate supervision in place

  • That I keep my knowledge and skills up-to-date through continuing professional development (CPD)

  • That I have adequate, current and ongoing professional indemnity insurance

  • That I can provide all documentation in case of an audit.


What is the ICO?

I am also registered with the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) which ensures that I uphold the highest quality when handling your data or information.

We live in a data-driven world. Almost every transaction and interaction you have with most organisations involves you sharing personal data, such as your name, address and birth date. You share data online too, every time you visit a website, search for or buy something, use social media or send an email.

Sharing data helps makes life easier, more convenient and connected. But your data is your data. It belongs to you so it's important your data is used only in ways you would reasonably expect, and that it stays safe. Data protection law makes sure everyone’s data is used properly and legally.
