Beryl Lowry, MBACP Dip Person Centred Counsellor
Sometimes life can be a challenging, bringing changes and difficulties to us all. During those periods we can some times find ourselves feeling ‘out of our depths’ drowning in anxiety and sadness; or we can even feel like we have 'lost control’ of an aspect of our lives, where our self resilient has become depleted. This could be caused through a sudden change in our circumstances, or through things that have occurred over a period of time or maybe even a combinations of both. Whatever the difficulty or struggle, I believe that the solution lies within you.
As a counsellor my role is to help you, to find that way forward; after all you are the expert on you. I will aid, guide and sometimes challenge you to explore your emotions in given situations and explore possible pathways that could lie ahead. My aim is to help you to gain full autonomy of your life and discover the best pathway for you. Nevertheless, l will not tell you what to do, but help you to move forward at a pace that is comfortable for you.
I am a member of The British Association of Counselling and Psychology (BACP), hence you can be assured that I have demonstrated myself to be a proficient and professional counsellor. I work within the parameters of the professional body’s ethical framework, and constantly strive to adhere to up-to-date codes of practice and research, thus providing the best quality of care for yourself. I am constantly refining and improving my techniques and knowledge, via engaging in up to date CPD courses, on a regular bases.
As a therapist I have gained a wrath experiences working with adults and couples and I have also expanded my knowledge and professional skills, enabling me to work therapeutically with children of all ages and abilities, both at school and home;
Furthermore, as my clientele has been both adults and children, l have learned to be extremely diverse in counselling methodology, working in non judgemental individualistic ways. Differences have never been an issue.
If you feel that I can be of any help to you, please feel free to contact me.
Thank you for your attention.

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.
