Charlotte Fisher- Registered MBACP BA (HONS) Humanistic Psychotherapist
Hello, I’m Charlotte.
I am a fully qualified BA (HONS) and BACP registered humanistic counsellor and psychotherapist with a fully enhanced DBS clearance. I currently offer online or telephone appointments via Microsoft Teams, WhatsApp, or iPhone FaceTime. I work with adults, children and couples providing a space where you can explore your feelings, thoughts and emotions within a safe and confidential environment.
My training is humanistic, although I work more within an integrated approach. I work with a focus on the relationship with myself and the client, acknowledging that the client is the expert on themselves. My work reflects and is influenced by methods which are integrated to the client’s specific requirements.
I have over 10 years of experience within counselling & psychotherapy and have worked in several charitable organisations, private practice, colleges & schools and currently work as a level 2&3 counselling lecturer at the local college.
I am also employed as a Mental Health, Well-being & Safeguarding Officer at a local college in which I support students with their mental health & wellbeing.
I am committed to furthering my personal and professional development through relevant CPD workshops and regular ongoing 1.5 hours monthly supervision. This ensures good ethical practice and is a BACP requirement.
Please feel free to get in touch with any questions and how best I can assist you.

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.

About Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Counselling and Psychotherapy are linked and similar, I am trained in both.
Counselling is often described as a type of talking help for particular issues and support is given with a focus of working within a time limited framework; it is sometimes viewed as short term support.
Psychotherapy is also concerned with issues, however as a psychotherapist, I view my role as working with the whole person, how they experience themselves and who they are in the world. I am interested in and work with behaviour, actions, thoughts and attitudes, and our emotional self.
One person experiencing depression may feel 'stuck' or 'shut down' and have difficulty coping with everyday responsibilities. Whereas another person describing depression may be experiencing anxiety and feelings of being overwhelmed which they are struggling to manage in a life that is busy. One individual's pace and journey of exploration can be very different to another’s, therefore psychotherapy is open ended and can continue for as long as the client desires it.
As a humanistic therapist, I am interested in each person’s uniqueness and seek to get to know and understand his/her story and their process. I do this through engaging with dialogue, and developing a working alliance so that we can explore together the issues that you bring.
Facing experiences often takes courage and therapy can provide a safe and confidential place where you can take risks with someone beside you.
