Christine Budgen Dip.Couns. MBACP. Cert. in Supervision
Hi I’m Chris(tine welcome to my profile.
I am an experienced counsellor and have been practicing for over 27years.
I have a warm friendly personality which helps clients to feel at ease. Along with my four friendly dogs. We will work on building a trusting relationship so clients can explore what is troubling them and find the way forward for a happier and more rewarding life.
I have experience in most things that affect the mental health and well being of clients. For example anxiety, depression, bereavement, trauma, chronic and life threatening illnesses, relationship/family issues, carers issues and disabilities. This list isn't exhaustive.
I offer reduced fees in some circumstances if I have the slots available. As I work part time I can usually see new clients immediately.
What to do next?
You can contact me, either by email or by phone on 0208 465 7325, to arrange a free initial half hour session so we can discuss how we can work together - I'll 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.

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).

I have appointments from 9 am - 8 pm Monday to Thursday. In exceptional circumstances I may be able to offer Saturday morning appointments.
I have four small affectionate dogs which my clients enjoy petting and the dogs help the clients feel at ease. They also instinctively know when the end of the session has arrived and come up to be petted. If a client has a fear of dogs and wants to address the problem then we can work on it with one dog at a time. With one client this work just took 3 sessions. If the client does not want to work on this issue then the dogs are secured in their cage in another room.
