Ashley Smith CEA Counselling Services and Clinical Supervision

About me

I am a qualified counsellor and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy working  within the code of ethics as laid down by the BACP.

I always work in the best way to suit you ensuring openess, honesty and transparency. As part of the BACP’s guidelines for ongoing professional development, I undergo regular supervision and access relevant training and professional development. I am fully insured.

Examples of the therapies I use in an integrated way are:

  • Person-Centred
  • Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Psychodynamic
  • Transactional Analysis (TA)

I have had my practise for over four years, having qualified in October 2015. I work mostly on a one to one basis and with couples

I'm a genuine empathic listener and the environment in which I counsel is relaxing and peaceful.My previous experience of working with families experiencing difficult times has given me an understanding of the human capacity to cope in time of crisis or difficulty.

Life events can often seem overwhelming affecting us, as individuals, in a wide variety of ways, such as anxiety, frustration, regret, lack of motivation/direction and low self-esteem and self confidence.Experiencing this can affect us negatively and affect the quality of life for ourselves and for our friends and family. It may seem like a variety of areas of our life are affected, such as our health, family, relationships, education, work, money, time etc.

If I am the right person for you to work with, it will feel right. Do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions at all in relation to the counselling and therapeutic relationship.

Warmest wishes and I look forward to working with you. Please contact me for further information via the website telephone or face book.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
