About me

We all face times in our lives when it’s hard to see the way ahead from our own: stuck, negative or anxious thoughts. CBT Counselling helps change these patterns of thinking in order to raise levels of mood and to think feel, and behave in more balanced ways.

I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor, in my 17th  year in private practice. I work both short or long term, whichever feels right for you. My approach is down to earth, and encouraging. I use Cognitive Behavioural techniques to help with the above issues and I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.

I have substantial experience of working with:

  • depression
  • anxiety
  • anger management
  • abuse
  • loss
  • bereavement
  • low self esteem
  • domestic abuse
  • relationship problems
  • general feelings of sadness and feeling stuck in life
  • supporting ADHD
  • work stress
  • lifestyle changes
  • cutting back on alcohol

I believe, with the right therapeutic relationship, an individual will feel supported and able to explore thoughts, feelings and behaviours which may be contributing to unhappiness with self, relationship and in work situations.

I work on the phone with either a 45 minute or 30 minute session, between the hours of 9-5 Tuesday-Friday.  We will decide together about frequency of sessions. 

In an initial assessment we can talk through your situation and discuss how my approach might help. In this session we will agree what goals/changes that you’d like to work towards. During the time that we agree to work together  my aim is to create a relaxed, confidential and trusting alliance. 

If you would prefer to speak to me directly please call me on:  Mobile: 07922254618 or email: mocahill@live.co.uk You can leave a message which is totally confidential and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
