I am a registered and accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and

Psychotherapy (www.bacp.co.uk).


I adhere to the Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions which was updated by the BACP

in July 2016. This includes holding full professional indemnity insurance and a current Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) Certificate.


I provide a confidential service and will not discuss anything arising from counselling sessions

with other with the exception of my Supervisor.

As part of the Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions I am required to discuss my

counselling work (without identifying individual clients) with my supervisor, to ensure that

I am providing the best ethical service. Also I am required to break confidentiality, should

I have serious concerns about client safety or the client expresses intention to harm

another person. I would make every attempt to speak to the client prior to taking this action.
