About me

Would you like a safe space to talk with a trained and qualified counsellor and explore the things that trouble you?

Do you want someone to listen and respond in a constructive way so as to help you find out what bothers you?

If you are worried or anxious about anything, then counselling may help. We all live in close company with problems we would prefer not to have. Dealing with those problems is something that takes time, patience and care. It also takes commitment and courage, especially if some of the issues that arise become difficult for you.

Time Out Counselling offers a discreet, safe, confidential, and caring service where you can work out what you feel is right for you with a view to making changes.

Time Out Counselling Service offers telephone and online video counselling to adults,  and EAP work.

A counselling session lasts for one hour.

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.
