Hello, my name is Abbie and I work in a compassionate, sensitive and empathic way which allows for my clients voice to be heard, enabling them to make effective life choices. I understand that counselling can feel like a scary prospect, which I hope will be eased after our first session together.
My aim with counselling is to help empower you to find your voice as well as yourself again.
I have worked with clients across all age ranges from age 5 up to and beyond retirement.
I have also worked with clients with a wide range of issues such as self-esteem, low mood, depression and anxiety to name a few. My aim is to help clients see the light at the end of what feels like an endless tunnel.
Aside from my private practice I work as a counsellor in a wide range of educational settings as well as children’s care homes
Training, qualifications & experience
- Post graduate diploma Clinical Counselling
- Certificate in Online and Telephone Counselling
- Diploma in Child and Adolescent Therapy
I have been a counsellor in a broad range of educational settings, including colleges and primary schools. I have also counselled in children's care homes and have extensive knowledge and experience of adults with learning disabilities.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
