Cornetta Williams Walker - Experienced Counsellor & Psychotherapist
Hello, my name is Cornetta and I am the mother of an adult child. I grew up in a difficult home environment and experienced ACE. I am often asked why have I been able to stay centred and grounded. I laugh and say “I have made lots of mistakes and I am human!’
Reflecting on this, I feel it’s my ability to listen, learn, and reflect but most of all to look at my life with compassion, acceptance, openness, and love.
If you feel I can be of service and help please contact me and read some more.

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.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
