The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy bought out a register; for the purpose of protecting the public. The register allows you to choose a counsellor who belongs to the register which is approved by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care. All counsellors that are registered are bound by the Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling & Psychotherapy and who have met the standards for registration. You can access further information on the following link and to check results of a therapist. http://www.bacpregister.co.uk.
You can find my details on the registration.
