About me

Life can be tough at times and it can be difficult to know where to turn. You may be experiencing low mood or anxiety or changes in your behaviour in reaction to issues in your life. My aim as your counsellor is to provide you with a safe, caring and confidential space where you would have time to make sense of any difficulties or distress that you may be experiencing.  I do not give you advice but offer a supportive environment where you can develop greater self-awareness and make changes to your life. I believe that you are the expert in your life and I will always respect that.

I am a qualified counsellor and an Accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.  As a member of the BACP I am committed to continual personal and professional development and abide by their code of ethics for good practice.

One of the reasons I trained as a counsellor was that I have had my own therapy and know from experience how helpful it can be.

As you are reading this it would appear that you have taken the first step to making changes in your life.  If you would like further information please call me and leave a message on my confidential voicemail or email me at p.forsyth1@btinternet.com and I will be in contact.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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 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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
