Charlotte Houghton - BA (Hons) in Counselling
I am passionate about helping people of all ages and backgrounds and believe that talking to someone outside the family can be really beneficial, I am caring and conscientious and will listen without judging or telling you what I think you should do, I also have some understanding of children with challenging behaviours and know the impact it can have on the whole family so can offer a safe space for you to be open and honest and work towards solutions or just be a friendly supportive ear. I will help you explore your issues within a safe, secure and confidential environment.
I am only offering individual virtual person-centred counselling or walk and talk therapy after initial online assessment session at the moment because in addition to COVID-19, I believe that hopefully you are more relaxed and will be more comfortable sharing personal 'stuff' in your own home or out on a walk, even if you only walk slowly.
To book your first appointment just drop me a message and I will get back to you to arrange our first session, which usually starts with paperwork, I understand that it can all feel a little daunting so we will go at your pace.
If you have any question, please do get in touch, I will get back to 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.
