Training & Qualifications

BACP 159286_logo.jpg

Sass Boucher MSc BA(Hons) MNCS (Accred) & MBACP Counsellor and Psychotherapist.


It’s incredibly important when you are looking for a counsellor or psychotherapist, that you are comfortable with the fact that they are fully trained, insured, and registered with an appropriate governing body. Therefore, I have listed below the formal learning and training that I have undertaken. Not all of it is relevant to my role as a counsellor, however it is all relevant to my professional life experience and learning.


If you have any questions at all, whether it’s around my therapeutic approach, or my learning, please do email me and I will do my best to answer them for you.


You can also check out my BACP members page here, and my Counselling Directory page here, as these organisations will not allow us as practitioners to be listed if we aren’t suitably qualified.
