About me

About me
Bea Jones

member of BACP (British Association of Cousellors and Psychotherapists)

member of PTUK (Play Therapy United Kingdom)

A principal aim of mine is to establish a relationship with you in which you see me as a caring and humane person who is genuinely concerned about your well-being. But this does not imply that I am satisfied with a cosy relationship that goes nowhere. Part of the process will involve me really listening to you. This will enable me to question you in a supportive way about assumptions which may have led to patterns of behaviours which are unproductive or even damaging. My experience of 25 years as a counsellor has enabled me to develop skills to support you while you try to process these issues.If you feel that you you would like to talk to me you can phone, text or email and we can arrange to meet to have a conversation over the phone and then you can decide if you wish to continue with me. I can offer half an hour conversation with you at no fee. We can meet as regularly as you wish. I am very flexible and can arrange sessions to fit in with your schedule - daytime, evenings and if necessary weekends.

I am supportive and non-judgemental and abide by the code of ethics of the BACP. The first session will be to establish whether you feel that you want to continue with me and whether I think that I can work with you productively.

At the present time because of Covid I am using Whatsap or Zoom to work with clients.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

review from a client:

Whilst attending Bea's therapy I have always found it to be helpful as it provides clarity and understanding to feelings, emotions and life situations that are then more easily understood. This knowledge then helps to manage future thoughts and experiences in a more positive way and she is also available to offer continuing support which I find very reassuring.

review from a person attending supervision:

I have been seeing Bea for 6 years, I have found the seasons with Bea so helpful and I have learnt so much.  I have been enabled to stay working with my current employer and to manage my stress levels. Before I started seeing Bea I had various symptoms of stress including headaches, heart palpitations, back aches, skin rashes, since seeing Bea I have experienced little to none of these symptoms.

Bea is friendly, knowledgeable and has incredible insight, I would highly recommend her service.
