Chris Browning MBACP Mindfulness and Hypnosis
I am an integrative counsellor, which means I am trained with the theoretical knowledge from all three of the traditional approaches in counselling, namely Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.
I offer a safe and secure setting, where you will have the opportunity to share and explore the issues that are causing you difficulty in your life, in a non-judgemental free environment.
Having the ability to work in a time limited, solution focused way or working together in an open ended relational way, I will be able to tailor an approach to suit your needs.
My background is vast, where I have valuable experience in working in mental health. I am currently working for the University of South Wales, promoting Mental Wellbeing, along with past experience from my work with the mental health charity Mind in Monmouthshire. My counselling background consists of working in mental health with Torfaen Mind, along with bereavement training and work with Cruse Bereavement.
I am more than happy to discuss my service further, via email, or a free telephone consultation.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) which is one of the first organisations to have its voluntary register assessed and accredited under a new scheme set up by the Department of Health. This is administered by an independent body which is accountable to Parliament; The Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care.
Accreditation means that the BACP Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists meets the authority’s high standards in governance, standard setting, education and training, management, complaints and information.
My practice encompasses the code of ethics set forth by the BACP which is available to view on their website.
