Charlotte Poole - Adult & Teenager Counsellor
I am a committed, caring, genuine and friendly person with a great passion and belief in the value of connecting with people. I believe in building a great therapeutic relationship and helping my client to find the best way forward for them. I have ten years experience and work with adults and teenagers in a person Centred way.
How do I work?
I work in a non-directive way in a safe and relaxed space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings and find some meaning in whatever is going on for you. I believe in a persons individual potential to know what is best for them. You are the expert on YOU. It is an opportunity to talk about the problems you are experiencing with a trained person who listens and cares.
Why see a counsellor?
"Are you struggling with anxiety, depression or something you cant quite identify?" Talking with a counsellor can help you make sense of your thoughts and feelings, help you feel less alone, lost, stuck and feel more confident and in control of your life. You will be listened to without judgement and be heard with respect and compassionate understanding.
What happens next?
I work with clients on a short and long term basis. The initial session is an opportunity to discover if my service and me are what you are looking for. We then agree to work for a certain amount of sessions.

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.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Week days 10-8
I am passionate about the power and value of talking therapy and feel very strongly this form of treatment should be more widely available for everyone. The therapeutic relationship that builds offers a unique opportunity to rediscover your personal worth, strength and power to connect to a more authentic you with the overall effect of feeling less alone, confused, depressed and stuck.
