About me

Thank you for visiting. My name is Carl Newsham and I am a professional Counsellor working from Burnley Lancashire. I hold a 1st Class Honors Degree in Counselling with Brief Interventions from Lancaster University. I am a registered member of The British Association of Counselling Practitioners, (BACP). I have 8 years experience in working with a wide range of clients including NHS and Local Authorities along with the Voluntary Sector and Addiction Services.

I offer both long and short term therapy for a wide range of presenting issues such as; Anxiety, Depression, Bereavement, Family and Relationship issues, Work related Stress, Trauma, Addiction, Childhood Issues, Confidence and Self Image crises amongst many others. I also offer positive mentorship to highlight the emotional and intellectual strengths of my clients that can change the way a problem is viewed, from a different perspective, with a goal to facilitating positive change.

I am pluralistic/integrative in approach meaning I can tailor the therapy to each individual client using a range of techniques from; Humanistic/Person-Centered Counselling, Solution-Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and NLP.

I practice from a comfortable and well appointed office in Burnley close to the M65 and a short drive from Burnley centre. There is ample off-road parking and we are on a major bus route with a stop right outside.

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.
