**In light of the current Coronavirus situation, I have moved my practice to working online using Skype or offering telephone sessions.
Facing the challenges that the outbreak of Coronavirus has brought can be scary and it is important that we all take time to look after our mental health.
If you are struggling to manage your feelings and cope with all the changes, please get in touch for support......I am with you in this challenging situation.**
Hi my name is Cindy Lowe and I am a qualified integrative counsellor and a Cognitve Behaviour Therapist. I am accredited with the BACP and BABCP.
Recognising that you may find therapy helpful is the first step to a more positive future. The next step is to find what type of counselling will suit you best.
As an integrative counsellor and CBT therapist, I work with different therapeutic approaches to suit your needs:-
The aim of psychodynamic therapy is to bring your unconscious mind into consciousness, helping you to unravel, experience and understand your true deep rooted feelings in order to resolve them.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy(CBT) can help you manage your difficulties by changing the way you think and behave.
Person Centred Therapy helps you to explore and utilise your strengths and personal identity to overcome the difficulties that are hindering your personal development and progress.
I work from home and provide a safe, confidential space to give you the opportunity to explore your feelings without feeling judged.
If you feel you are struggling and are ready to embark on a journey of self discovery and fulfillment, there’s no need to travel alone....

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 Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies
The BABCP is the lead organisation for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in the UK.
Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the practice, theory or development of CBT. BABCP also provides accreditation for CBT therapists.
BABCP accredited members adhere to the Standards of Conduct, Performance and Ethics in the Practice of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies, and are willing to be scrutinised in this adherence as required.
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
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
