Carole Palmer MBACP (reg) Dip. Coun. B.Ed (hons)
There are time in all our lives when we feel that things have become too much for us and we can't see the wood for the trees! At times like this we can feel stressed and anxious which can in turn affect our confidence and self-esteem not to mention our decision making ability and motivation. We know that talking can help in these situations but the people around us might not always understand or be the able to help.
As a counsellor with 13 years’ experience I can provide a safe, confidential space to explore the issues that are troubling you. When the stresses of modern life become too much, any underlying issues/past traumas can resurface compounding our problems and preventing us from finding a way forward. With the right counselling relationship you can come to understand yourself better and start to make progress which you might otherwise have found difficult to do on your own.
I know it can feel like a big step to see a counsellor so please phone me for a confidential chat on 07966573360 or alternatively email me at email@example.com

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

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).
