Anne Judith Seddon
My name is Judith and I have been working as a Counsellor for twenty years and as a Supervisor for eighteen years. I became an Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) in 2004 and I am a Registered Member of BACP. I have Indemnity Insurance and have regular Casework Supervision.
I am a Person Centred Counsellor. This means that I will work to make the kind of relationship with you that will enable your growth and development as an autonomous individual. I will not attempt to provide you with my answers to problems, instead I will aim to help you find your own answers, make sense of what is happening to you, help you understand your feelings and/or explore ways of making changes.
I firmly believe that people have the capacity and resources to find their own way through their difficulties when they are able to talk thought and explore them with professional help in a non-judgemental, safe and respectful environment.
I work with individuals, couples and families, offer Psycho Social Support and Critical Incident Debriefing.
I have a special interest in working with people who have experienced trauma, abuse, domestic violence, bereavement and loss, parenting, depression, obsessions, post-traumatic stress, relationship difficulties, anxiety and stress.
I can offer daytime or evening appointments and can also offer flexibility to accommodate shift patterns.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.

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).
