Hello, my name is Adrienne, I am a fully qualified experienced Counsellor and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. Through years of experience of dealing with many different situations, I have developed the depth of knowledge and life experience to provide a real understanding and empathy to my client’s needs. It has helped me provided the knowledge to support and enhance the lives of the people I have counselled. I am firstly a good listener, and believe that by providing a calm, empathic, warm and supportive environment where my clients can share and express their concerns, fears and problems and at a pace that matches their own personal needs, Is the correct way to allow us both to fully understand the sometimes deep seated and complex issues which have brought them to seek help in the first place.
Perhaps you may have felt that you would be able to deal with the problem yourself, thinking you had to keep going, trying to keep strong and hoping that things would get better and that the situation would change. But occasionally people need the care and support network that only a qualified therapist offers. I focus on always addressing the problems, resolving their anxieties and in doing so give my clients an inner belief to face the future with a renewed optimism and confidence.
What to expect in my sessions
In my Counselling sessions I will provide you with a safe place to speak honestly about the challenges you face, in a non- judgement environment. A place where you can discuss your worries and fears and to enable you to explore the options you want to pursue.
It enables you to access the support you need to allow you to make the changes which can at times be challenging, but that will bring a new positive way of thinking and to deal with the problems you face with a renewed optimism. It is often the hardest step to seek help, and it is great that you have taken this big decision now.
I would be delighted to meet for an initial consultation and discuss how I may be of help and assistance.

As a member of the British association for Counselling and Psychotherapy that I adhere to a strong code of ethics and practices.
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.
