About me

About me:

Hello, my name is Charlotte and I am a qualified Counsellor, and a registered member of the BACP. I work with all adults 16 years+, in my own private practice- 'The Pocklington Therapy Room', based in Pocklington. I also offer online Zoom sessions for those who may prefer that option.

Whatever your reasons for turning to counselling, from a loss, low mood, or relationship struggles, to panic attacks, difficult emotions or low self esteem- I can be sure to offer a safe and supportive space to explore these issues together, free from judgement or outside influences.

How I work:

I am a Humanistic Integrative Counsellor, meaning I offer a wide range of approaches, theories and concepts, according to the individual and their personal needs.

I believe that each and every one of us are unique and different in this world.  A lifetime of personal experiences have shaped us all into the people we are today, and therefore implementing a 'one size fits all' approach in the therapy room seems impossible. With this in mind, I will always work in a way that is tailored to you, and your individual needs.

Counselling/Therapy is regularly referred to as 'talking therapy'. Talking, and feeling truly heard, is so powerful within a strong therapeutic relationship and should never be underestimated. However, I truly believe that there are huge benefits in using creativity to improve our mental wellbeing, and I am able to offer this within my therapy sessions. Often talking can feel too difficult for many people, which is where creative techniques can be extremely useful and can often act as a gateway to accessing and/or expressing peoples thoughts, feelings and experiences, in a way that feels safe to them.

I offer a free initial consultation via Zoom which can last up to 45 minutes- this will give us a chance to explore what you would like to achieve in Counselling, and how we might work together. Most importantly, it can give you an opportunity to see how comfortable you feel during our time talking,  as I believe feeling at ease with your Counsellor is crucial in developing a strong therapeutic relationship.

Following this, I will provide hourly sessions, either via Zoom or face to face. I welcome all clients, aged 16 years and over, from all walks of life.

I look forward to meeting you and getting to know you.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
