Carla Burns Counselling MBACP

About me

I am an experienced psychotherapeutic counsellor, offering a non-judgemental space for you to explore whatever is troubling you.

I have worked with people suffering with grief, heartache, loss, anxiety, depression, shame, isolation, trauma, procrastination, low self-esteem, fearfulness, relationship difficulty, anger, emptiness, and overwhelm.

I practise integrative counselling, meaning that I draw from a range of approaches depending on your needs and strengths. I mainly use psychodynamic, Jungian, gestalt, humanistic, and transpersonal approaches.

I see our relationship as central to the counselling process. I offer support and challenge, working collaboratively and respecting your autonomy.

Before training as a counsellor, I studied Psychology (MA) and worked in a range of settings, including providing therapy in an NHS service for people experiencing anxiety and depression.

I come to counselling with firsthand experience of long-term therapy and a personal understanding of the benefits and challenges of the therapeutic journey.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Diploma in Integrative Transpersonal Counselling
  • MA (Hons) Psychology

Member organisations


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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access


All sessions are currently online or by phone due to Covid 19. I have two spaces coming available on Monday or Wednesday evenings and Friday afternoons.
