Christine Ketley (now Sands) MBACP Accred
When you are looking for a Counsellor, you will probably want to feel comfortable with an experienced and empathic professional who can help you to understand and work through your problem effectively. As a Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor, I have nearly twenty years experience working in private practice and in various organisations.
Through my years of extensive training, I understand the importance of working in a way that is suitable for you and I will therefore carefully and sensitively assess the needs of my clients to ensure you make full use of my counselling service.
I can also offer Single Session Therapy whereby I could help you in a structured and constructive way to get "unstuck" with the most important concern you have at this time, and help you to decide whether more sessions would be useful.
I have worked successfully with adult clients from all walks of life with a wide range of problems and I now specialise in relationship issues and workplace stress.
I am also a qualified and experienced Clinical Supervisor and welcome contact from potential Supervisees, including Counsellors or any Caring Professionals.
I work in a very comfortable environment, am fully insured and of course, confidentiality is assured.

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.
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.
