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)
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).
