Anita Redfern. MSc Counselling Psychology. MBACP.
AT THIS TIME OF SOCIAL DISTANCING I AM HAPPY TO OFFER SESSIONS VIA ZOOM, SKYPE OR TELEPHONE AS WELL AS FACE TO FACE.
I offer counselling in a private and confidential environment and will work with you to help you deal with any personal issues including relationships, anxiety, bereavement, abuse, work related issues and general unhappiness or dissatisfaction with life.
I work in a person-centred way which means I believe in helping you explore your thoughts and feelings in a non judgemental atmosphere where you can find your own truth, answers and way forward, the way that is right for you.
It is rarely possible to talk to family or friends in a totally free manner without feeling there may be judgements on you and without having to consider their feelings about what you have to say. Person-centred counselling with myself gives you a safe, confidential and non judgemental environment to allow yourself to fully explore your thoughts and feelings and to gain a greater understanding of yourself.
I feel that a safe relationship based on trust and understanding is vital to a positive counselling experience. I believe my job is to help us to build such a relationship in order to enable you to gain greater insight, awareness and clarity into your situation, allowing you to move forward in a positive way.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
