Chanel McDevitt-Kyle, MBACP
I recognise that it can feel difficult to know if counselling is right for you. You may be feeling nervous about beginning therapy or unsure of how counselling could help. To alleviate some of this uncertainty, I offer a Free 30-minute telephone consultation; this gives you an opportunity to ask any questions that you may have about counselling as well as an opportunity for us both to talk about how we could work together.
By booking a free, friendly telephone consultation, it gives us the chance to build a rapport, and helps in supporting you to explore your options in counselling.
Counselling is a 'talking therapy' which aims to bring about understanding, change, and healing. Therapy can help with issues such as Anxiety, Stress, Panic attacks, Low self esteem, Depression & Low Mood, Bereavement, Loss, Relationship problems. This is not an exhaustive list, please call to discuss your individual needs.
Even amongst close friends and family, some thoughts and feelings can be difficult to express or share. Often, the ability to talk about these difficult feelings and experiences in confidentiality with a professional, independent person, free from any judgement, can be key to starting your journey of change. Contact me via telephone, email or visit my website for further details or to arrange your Free 30min consultation.

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.
