Adrian Self MBACP, Counsellor
There are times in all our lives when we feel unable to cope. Talking with a counsellor who is impartial, empathic and non-judgemental can help you work through your personal difficulties and find solutions.
I offer space, time and support for you to explore what concerns you; to feel heard, understood and valued. Our work together will bring insight, new perspectives and the opportunity for change - with the aim of enabling you to live your life more fully and freely, to feel fresh, appreciative and alive.
I am an experienced and qualified counsellor. I offer a highly confidential and safe space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings in a supportive and helpful way.
Making a start
Making the first call or sending the first email may feel really difficult, particularly if you haven't felt able to speak openly before, or have never had any experience or expectation of being truly heard.
It takes a great deal of bravery and determination to reach out to a psychotherapist or counsellor, and many people still wait until everything is falling apart before they take that first step.
Maybe you're just curious to find out more?
After a free introductory consultation by phone or email, we can arrange an initial meeting, without obligation, where we can explore together whether counselling is right for you, and whether I am the right person for you.
Evening appointments are available and free parking is available nearby.

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.
