Christine Simson MBACP (Accred) Counselling Therapist
Are you struggling with a difficulty in your life? You might be feeling overwhelmed and unable to move forward. Or perhaps you find it difficult to define your problem?
Hello, I'm Christine. Thank you for visiting my profile page.
You may be thinking of seeking help but don’t know where to start.
I am an experienced integrative counselling therapist and I work using a range of traditional and contemporary models of psychotherapy including CBT and Mindfulness.
I work with those who may be living with feelings of sadness, loss or dissatisfaction with life. I will listen to you without judgement and work with you in understanding yourself better. Therapy can help in finding new ways of thinking and feeling about life’s events, enabling you to move on in your life.
Most people experience emotional difficulties at some point in their lives. People seek therapy for a wide range of issues including depression and anxiety, stress, unresolved issues from the past, feeling unable to move on in life, traumatic experiences, low self esteem or relationship difficulties.
A safe and confidential place where you can talk about your difficulties can bring a sense of relief, while offering the possibility of lasting change.
The areas I work in include:
Depression, stress and anxiety
Loss and bereavement
Difficulties with relationships and intimacy
Unresolved issues from the past
Feeling unable to move on in life
Feeling stuck in unwanted patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
