Charlotte Houghton

BA (Hons) in Counselling
Gainsborough, North Lincolnshire, DN21

About me

I work collaboratively with you as the expert on yourself to help explore your issues within a non-judgmental and confidential environment. I find that people need on average 6-12 sessions but some people only need 2 or 3, some more, therefore I review after every 4 sessions to make sure you are getting the most from the counselling. There is also the opportunity for single session catch-ups after the initial counselling to talk through any developments.

The individual virtual person-centred counselling I offer is by phone, Skype or walk and talk therapy after initial online assessment session because 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. 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.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
