Caroline Hudson MBACP (accred) Counsellor and Supervisor
UPDATE APRIL 2020:
The therapy centre is not open for face to face therapy. However some of our therapists are offering online and telephone counselling. Please get in touch for details.
I work from my therapy centre in Beverley - Beverley Counselling & Psychotherapy. Please see our website for more details www.beverleytherapy.co.uk
In addition to myself, seven highly experienced therapists are based at the centre and we are able to offer family and couples therapy as well as individual counselling and psychotherapy. We are able to see clients of all ages, and all have extensive experience in working with young people and older adults.
My charges remain the same at £50 an hour but I do also have a very limited number of reduced rate sessions. Other therapists may charge different rates, so please get in touch with me to find out more
I am fully qualified BACP accredited counsellor. Having had experience of counselling myself as a young adult I became interested in counselling as a career and now have over 16 years experience as a counsellor working in a variety of settings both with teenagers 16+ and adults. As a BACP registered counsellor I adhere to the BACP's ethical framework.
I believe in trying to make counselling a down to earth experience. I do not believe in using jargon or making lots of notes and I aim to to make my clients feel as comfortable and welcome as possible. My aim is to try and really understand what is going on for you and to help you make sense of it. Like all counsellors I work in a non judgemental way meaning that you won’t be judged.
There is still some remaining stigma in society about seeking counselling. I believe that seeking a space and time to talk to someone about your problems is a really sensible and rational choice. Some people come with a specific problem they want to deal with, others know just that there is something wrong without a clear idea of what it is. Either way I can help you understand what is going wrong and help you to find a way through it.
I have a special interest and experience in working with anxiety, depression and eating disorders. I also have over 15 years experience in working with young adults (aged 16-25).
I am a qualified clinical supervisor and I also tutor on a counselling course in Hull.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.

INTRODUCTORY SESSION - £50
This session lasts about an hour and is a chance to talk through why you would like counselling and if counselling would be right for you. It gives you a chance to meet me and decide if you would like to work together. There is no commitment to further sessions. If you think you would like further sessions we would make a plan together.
FURTHER SESSIONS - £50
I offer both short and long term counselling. Some people prefer to have a limited number of sessions (6-10) to focus on an issue that is causing them problems at that moment. Some people prefer a more open ended arrangement so that they can explore a number of issues which perhaps go back historically in order to find a better way of living in the present. I offer both possibilities and we will discuss this in your first session.
I hold a current enhanced DBS Certificate.
We do not have private parking at the centre but there is lots of unrestricted parking in the streets around the centre.
