Chris Faulkner MBACP Counsellor and Psychotherapist
Hello and a warm welcome. My name is Chris and I am a fully qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist offering face to face and online therapy to adults who may be experiencing trauma, bereavement, and stress-related problems.
I offer a warm, empathic, and judgment-free space from which you can begin to express feelings around what's bothering you. A single event or a number of small regular events in life can affect your internal equilibrium and provoke feelings of confusion, anger, sadness, or loneliness to name but a few.
I have experience in working with individuals in the armed forces, civil servants, and people working and living in high-stress environments. By forming a trusting therapeutic relationship, which is both gentle and challenging, I walk alongside you and help you to try and make sense of feelings and help identify any issues that could be preventing you from living life with maximum potential.
My clients often say that I really 'get them' and they feel comfortable expressing their true thoughts and feelings during our sessions. I believe this is because I truly care about the wellbeing of my clients, tailoring our sessions to each individual and their specific needs.
Getting in touch…
If you have any questions about therapy with me and how I may be able to help you, then I would like to invite you to get in touch with me today. You can call or text me on 07799 697952 or click here to send me an email.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.

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.
Accredited register membership

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).
