Charlotte Smith BACP Accredited
Are you in your 20's, 30's or 40's struggling to deal with the challenges of working, managing relationships or combating stress, anxiety and depression? I specialise in helping individuals just like you, perhaps who are wondering what is next for them.....a new career path, whether to settle down or start a family, or extend their social world to end the loneliness currently felt. I offer both short-term CBT or long- term counselling depending on an individual's needs. Please feel free to call me or email to arrange an initial session together.

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.
