Hello, my name is Charlotte Precious and I am a person-centred counsellor and a member of the BACP. I offer a warm welcoming, safe place where you can be heard and accepted and be able to explore the issues which effect you.
People come to counselling for many reasons, they can range from struggling to cope with day to day life, feeling anxiety, alone and unworthy and having low self-esteem, through to managing the long-term effects of traumatic experiences both in adulthood or childhood.
Asking for help can be the most difficult and at the same time the bravest thing we can do. By working together, we can build a relationship in which you know you are heard, understood and valued and through that trust, you can feel safe to explore what is causing your distress.
I offer unlimited, hourly sessions both in person from my counselling room on Cottingham Road (Hull) or remotely by Skype or Zoom.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am fully qualified (Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling)
For a number of years, I have been a volunteer listener for the Samaritans and a bereavement support volunteer for Cruse. I also volunteer for a charity in Hull which provides therapeutic counselling to survivors of trauma and child abuse.
My particular experience is in working with grief and loss, and also the effects of traumatic experiences, this includes working with self-harm, drugs and alcohol problems, feeling stuck, unworthy, low self-esteem, domestic violence, sexual violence and suicidal thoughts and feelings.
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.
