About me

I offer online and telephone counselling.

Hi, I'm Christine a Pluralistic counsellor working with adults, young people, families, and groups.

I believe each client is unique, has individual needs, expectations and goals. Working collaboratively allows a tailored approach to meet the needs of each individual.

Building a trusting, non-judgemental relationship is important in the counselling setting, helping to promote a place of personal discovery, growth and helps support clients achieve their desires. My practice is primarily TA (Transactional Analysis), Person-Centred with some elements of Psychodynamic and CBT.

Taking a holistic view, I believe mental health has an impact on our physical health, therefore, my practice promotes exercise, cultural interests and social factors; dependant on client ability and/or wishes.

Member organisations

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.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.
