Charlotte Walker PGDip, MBACP Psychotherapist for adolescents & young adults.
I offer a professional, friendly service with a focus on working with depression and low mood, anxiety, including social anxiety, suicidal feelings, intrusive thoughts, low self esteem and negative body image, and trauma, including sexual abuse (past/current).
Reaching out to take the next step may feel difficult, but finding the right support really can change your life.
I also appreciate this may not be your first time reaching out and you may have felt let down by past experiences. This is why providing an honest and transparent service is so important to me. I offer a genuine, authentic and caring environment, and the consultation can explore any previous problems with counsellors/mental health services.
If you are a parent who is worried about their teen, you can enquire on their behalf initially to find out whether I could help support them. I would then offer them the consultation to see if they wanted to work together.
To find out whether I could help or to arrange a free initial consultation, you can ring or email me and hopefully we can start working towards making things feel better.
Training, qualifications & experience
I offer the opportunity to talk in a confidential, non-judgemental space and I will work with you to try and make things better, while understanding that ‘better’ looks different to everyone. I studied an integrative approach so I can work with you as an individual, combining different therapies to suit your needs. This is because I don't believe one type of therapy fits all, I therefore work with a lot of people for who cognitive behaviour therapy hasn't been the correct fit.
I work in a non-directive way which means I won't just tell you what to do. We will work together so you feel in control and empowered by therapy.

As a fully insured and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I adhere to a strict ethical code.
I work in private practice and I am employed by a sixth form college to provide counselling to adolescents.
I have also provided counselling in the charity sector and at a rape and sexual abuse service.
Before counselling, I worked for the Samaritans for over four years. It was during this time I realised the healing power of truly being listened to and believed by another person.
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.

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).
