Bernadette McGregor, BA Hons, PG Dip Counselling, MBACP
I am an experienced counsellor and can provide a comfortable space in which you can explore and process any painful thoughts or feelings. Releasing these thoughts and feelings can bring relief, restore energy, provide insight and understanding, and help to break any self-defeating patterns. We can work together to decrease the volume of any inner critical voice, and break any negative core beliefs in order to give you the maximum freedom to direct your life. I have worked as an integrative counsellor since 2003 and have a wide range of experience in working with depression, anxiety, abuse and low self-esteem.
I aim to make counselling affordable and therefore I keep my fee as low as possible. My sliding scale offers a reduced fee to students/unemployed. The session will last for the full 60 minutes.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling from the Minster Centre in North London and am a BACP accredited counsellor. I have a broad range of experience and have been trained to use the psychodynamic, person centred and other humanistic approaches. I have also trained in EMDR therapy which is an effective method to aid processing of difficult, painful and traumatic experiences as well as completing a hypnotherapy course for counsellors and psychotherapists which can be used as an additional tool to erase any negative beliefs recorded in the subconscious mind.
