Reflections Counselling RELAX - REFLECT - RETHINK: -
With over 16 years experience, I work from a discreet location providing Counselling, Psychotherapy and Emotional Support to adults who are looking for a chance to make a real change. Experienced in both long term and short term work I am flexible within my practice offering weekly or fortnightly agreements and incorporating some evening appointments. As an Integrative Counsellor I work from a Person Centred Perspective believing that you have the answers to your problems within you and my role is to help you uncover them.
Some of the issues brought to counselling may include but are not limited to:
Abuse, Depression, Anxiety, Anger Management, Adoption, Bullying, Illness, Relationships, Bereavement, Decision Making, Divorce, Self Harm, Being a Carer,
Redundancy/Retirement, Suicidal Thoughts .........to name but a few. Sometimes you simply don't feel yourself and you might not know why.
The most important thing to remember is that whatever you bring you will be treated with warmth, respect and not be judged. I am a member of the BACP and work within their ethical framework at all times.

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.
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).

Sessions last for 50 mins and are chargeable at £50 for individuals. All fees to be paid at the end of each session by cash or cheque.
Counselling is used differently by each individual whether you want to use it to learn new coping strategies, make decisions, re-evaluate your life, work through trauma, build your confidence, grieve for the loss of a loved one (or a pet), uncover the root of your anger and learn how to manage it - the choice is yours. If you are not sure that counselling is for you, why not arrange a free, no obligation, half hour meet with me? I can assure you of my respect and honesty at all times. Take a chance to make a change.
