Hello and welcome to my page. My name is Briony and I'm a professionally qualified MBACP counsellor working in the private & charity sector. I'm also a lecturer of counselling.
-experiencing feelings such as anxiety, depression, overwhelm, anger, shame, guilt, sadness, loneliness, hopelessness
-Struggling with low self-esteem
-struggling with negative thoughts
-feeling stuck, trapped or withdrawing from things you usually enjoy
-using unhealthy coping mechanisms

-feeling relationships are strained
-or that you simply need to talk to someone
If so, I am here to help. My clients say I'm an excellent listener, caring, understanding & non-judgmental. I offer a warm, safe space to work with you through your distress and pain.
As an integrative counsellor I use an intuitive approach to tailor sessions to your unique needs and life. This means working with you to find a way to understand your thoughts, feelings, actions or experiences and a way through your problems towards your goals and a happier & healthier you.
My role is to give you time to help you feel empowered and able to create positive change or to gain acceptance with problems.
I offer a choice of face to face, telephone, or video counselling sessions.
You don't have to do this alone.

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.
