Charlotte Povey (MBACP, MNCS)
I offer a warm, empathic and non-judgmental counselling service. Within sessions we will delve into how best to explore your current situation, this may be via talking, body/breath work or through art work.
I have worked with many different clients experiencing a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, stress, relationship problems, low confidence / self esteem, self harm and suicidal intent amongst others.
Telephone and online counselling via Zoom also available.

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.
