Claire Carter MBACP BA Hons DipC PGCE
In my work as a counsellor and therapeutic coach I aim to offer you a safe, confidential and non judgmental space to start working through any issues which might be causing problems in every day life. I use an Integrative approach, which is tailored to individual needs to help manage anxiety, low mood and change unhelpful thinking patterns and unwanted behaviours.
In these uncertain times, it feels more important than ever to focus on our emotional health and wellbeing and invest in self care and I can offer a personalised blend of counselling support, therapeutic and life coaching strategies and mindfulness techniques.

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).
