Trauma - Based Psychotherapist and Addiction Counsellor

About me

Hello, my name is Cornetta, thank you for checking my profile.  I have a long standing career as a  trauma/ attachment based psychotherapist and relationship counsellor.  I blend western psychology with  eastern practices like  mindfullness and holistic wisdom.   

All parts are welcome!  This means in practice, I am passionate about supporting indviduals who need a safe space to talk regardless of gender, race, age, abilities,  appearance, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, class, education ,etc. 

  • Couples - work to support the relationship and improve emotional  connection, assertive communication and intimacy 
  • individuals - help with goal setting, life skills, anxiety and depression ,shame, trauma healing from narcissitic parents/ partner and self compassion 
  • young people - safe space to talk ( every 6 weeks have a session with the caregiver)

As a result of this distinctive approach,  I am able to mindfully pay attention to your life with compassion, acceptance, openness, curiousity and sensitivity.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
