Beverley Woodhead. Dip.Counselling, Reg.MBACP
I am a fully qualified Counsellor and a registered member of the BACP. I offer a professional and confidential service to support you in overcoming difficulties you may be experiencing in life. There may be many reasons why you feel you need to access some extra help other than talking to family and friends, Counselling will provide time and space for you to be listened to when you need it most.
Asking for help isn't easy, experiencing feelings and thoughts you can't understand can be overwhelming. I will provide a safe, supportive and confidential environment for you to talk through these difficulties. Offering a warm, non-judgemental ethical space working alongside you to identify and focus on your concerns moving towards understanding, acceptance and a changed outlook on life.

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.
