About me

Hi, I’m Charlotte, an accredited BACP Counsellor who predominantly works with Adolescents aged 10 Plus and adults, specialising in the area of Neurodivergents and trauma.   I am ADHD and dyslexic myself as well as having a complete neurodivergent family, so I can guarantee as well as a large, hyper focused amount of training in this area, which I am always adding too,  I have lived experience of some of the twist and turns you may be navigating.  


 I provide a safe, supportive and tranquil space either face to face in my summer house at the bottom of the garden or online, where I bring my authentic, compassionate self as I believe this is the basis of any therapeutic relationship.   Through exploration, gentle challenging and working in collaboration with a a sprinkling of psycho education (understanding your brain can be everything) and laughter at some points,  together we can explore your thoughts, feelings and goals you may want to set.   I also work with Neuro typical clients, who feel my approach meets their needs.  


 Through years of working in this area I have come up with a unique approach of combining Counselling, Coaching and mentoring to a level that suits you, meaning every client gets a unique experience that suits them, how do I know it suits them?  Because they have complete input in this process. 

Specialties:

Neurodivergence: Understanding the unique perspectives of neurodivergent individuals is my specialty. Together, we'll explore your strengths, challenges, and develop strategies as well as acceptance to thrive in a neurotypical world.  I can also signpost you to services if needed  and psychoeducate so you have a complete and wholesome understanding of yourself that you can truly embrace and love.

Trauma: Life's journey can be rocky, and past traumas can weigh heavily on our minds. I offer a compassionate and trauma-informed approach to help clients process their experiences and build resilience.  I am trained in tri phase model and EMDR, meaning we can use a range of models to support you.  

Adolescents and Adults: Adolescence and adulthood bring their own set of joys and struggles. Whether you're navigating a new diagnosis, trying to work out if you are neurodivergent, old diagnoses that maybe you don’t understand, Identity exploration, relationship issues  or life transitions as well as Anxiety and depression   I'm here to offer a space to work through and be by your side on your therapeutic journey .


Want to know more?   How about booking a free 20 min online, informal chat.   Through this you can get a true sense of me and if you feel I’m the right fit for you.  We will talk about what you want to get from sessions and I can give you more information about how I feel we can work together, which you can have complete input in as well as asking me any questions you may have.

Member organisations

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
