About me

Hello. My name is Bernadette Castle.

I am an experienced Chartered Counselling Psychologist (BPS, HCPC registered) based in Farnham, Surrey and conveniently located for the local towns and villages of Guildford, Alton, Ash, Farnborough and Aldershot.

I offer a confidential counselling service to adults with a wide range of concerns and issues. These include, amongst others:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • bereavement
  • low self-esteem
  • abuse
  • stress
  • long-term medical health concerns
  • disfigurement and disability
  • body image concerns
  • relationship difficulties
  • cancer, burns, skin conditions, congenital conditions, scarring

I can offer long or short term counselling, depending on your individual needs.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained to become a Chartered Counselling Psychologist at the University of Surrey, Roehampton.

I am accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and registered with Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

I am trained in an integrative approach, and this means that I can refer to and apply a number of theories and models to gather a more full understanding of the problems people present with. I have received training in three of the most historical theoretical approaches – cognitive behavioural therapy, the psychodynamic approach and person-centred counselling.

I have worked in a variety of settings, including a student counselling service, a hospital outpatient counselling service, and within the voluntary sector. Whilst I have extensive experience in the area of physical health and working with people living with conditions that affect their health and appearance, I also have experience in many other areas including, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, body image concerns, stress and relationship difficulties.

Prior to training as psychologist, I worked as a nurse and this experience is invaluable when working with clients with medical health concerns.
