Hi, I'm Benedicta, I am a BACP Registered and Online Certificated Counsellor.
If you looking for a therapist who is warm and passionate about supporting you to feel more positive about your life, I am here to help you. I am an experienced counsellor and fully trained online therapist.
I offer a compassionate approach, drawing on a range of therapeutic theories to help you move forward. I also have experience working with addiction, loss, bereavement, suicidal ideology, relationship problems and anxiety to name a few.
So, if you have any questions or concerns, or to discuss how I can help, please contact me on my mobile or email and I will aim to reply as urgently as I can.

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.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

I can also work via WhatsApp, telephone or email. I will be available for as many, or as few sessions as you would like. I recommend that you commit to at least six sessions initially, but this is of course your choice.
I endeavour to reply as a matter of urgency, and I keep all information strictly confidential in compliance with the BACP Privacy Code.
