Sometimes we realise that we are repeating patterns in our lives that are not particularly helpful, but we can't seem to find a way to break them. Or we can become stuck, feeling like something is blocked, and we don't know how to clear the way through.
Whether there is a specific problem, such as a bereavement, difficulties within a relationship or perhaps a more general feeling that life isn't turning out quite how you had hoped, counselling can allow you to see things clearly, sometimes for the very first time.
Just feeling really heard for the for the first time can in itself be significantly powerful.
Exploring the journey that we have made so far can enable us to cope better with the challenges that lie ahead.
Making the first move to contact a counsellor can feel like a difficult task, but it can also be the first step towards embarking on a fulfilling journey.

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.
