My name is Abigail Lang and I am a Qualified Integrative Counsellor registered with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). I am friendly, optimistic and open minded and can offer you a safe, non-judgemental and confidential counselling service.
For anyone familiar with Counselling as an Integrative Counsellor I incorporate elements of the Person Centred, Cognitive Behavioural and Transactional Analysis therapeutic models in to my work. For those not familiar with Counselling what this means is I tailor make the therapeutic process to fit you, the client, and your individual needs.
I believe that we all intuitively know what is right and wrong for us, but due to the pressure that sometimes accompanies modern life we can become cut off from this inner knowledge and our own intuition. Ever ask yourself how did I end up here? Found yourself at a fork in the road and not sure how to move forward? Are you looking for change? If you’ve ever found yourself thinking in this way, or you’re just looking for some help and support, then counselling might be right for you.
I am confident that I am able to support others in their own development. I am open, honest and down to earth in my work, allowing you, the client to speak freely. I endeavour to support you in finding solutions for whatever issues you are currently facing, and achieving your goals.
Counselling is most effective when based on a trusting relationship. Therefore I offer you a free 30 minute initial consultation to meet me, discuss your needs in therapy, and establish if I am the counsellor for you.
Please call me or email me (information at the top of my profile) to book your free initial consultation.

I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and adhere to their ethical framework and guidelines.
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.
Accredited register membership

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).
