I am Chrissie, a qualified integrative counsellor working with adults, children and adolescents. Counselling can provide a safe, confidential, accepting space to talk over things. There may be specific things to discuss with the intention of accepting a situation or how to change current emotional responses. Unresolved past issues can play their part in a feeling stuck in situations, resolution could help to move life forwards again.
I believe that counselling offers a journey of discovery to reach positive change. This is paramount when working with clients that are reaching out for a space to talk over challenges. I understand how unresolved past issues can play their part in a feeling of stuck sensation; resolution could help to move life forwards again. I provide a counselling experience that will offer a journey of discovery to reach positive change. Regular sessions will embrace reaching full potential and thinking forwards to the future, while exploring past and present.
Holistically we can work to explore and reach an understanding towards past events, becoming aware of this reduces how it impacts on the here and now. As things slot into place, forward movements in life can place you right where you would like to be. You may develop strength and feel more authentic as a person. I work to bring about self-compassion, self-awareness and helpful ways of thinking and being, this all contributes to living a more enjoyable, straightforward life.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
