Therapy offers you a safe, confidential place to talk about your life and anything that may be confusing, painful or uncomfortable. It allows you to talk with someone who is trained to listen attentively and to help you improve things.
The counsellor's role is to work with you, to listen, reflect, help bring clarity and perspective and to be alongside you on your journey. By exploring your issues through the counselling process we believe you will be able to reach your own decisions and solutions. No doctors referral is necessary you can refer your self.
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.

Myth #1: Counselling is only for crazy people
Reality: Many people who attend counselling are bright, skilled, and stable people. These individuals are often struggling with problems in a specific area and seeking personal growth and development. Stressors and difficulties are a part of life for all people. Many argue that the ability to ask for and accept counselling help represents clear evidence of intelligence and sanity.
Myth #2: Counselling is only for problems that are severe
Reality: Most individuals seek counselling for everyday issues like relationship problems, stress, and symptoms of depression. It is true that counselling can be helpful for individuals suffering from severe problems. However, seeking counselling for problems at this level does not represent the majority of clients in counselling. Additionally, attending counselling when problems are mild to moderate can prevent problems from becoming severe.
Myth #3: Everyone will know I'm seeing a counsellor
Reality: Counsellors our bound by professional ethics and state law to protect your confidentiality and privacy both during counselling and after counselling ends. Only in extreme cases where someone is in imminent danger or a judge mandates release of counselling records can confidentiality be broken. Outside of these circumstances, information can only be shared if you share it or you provide written authorisation for releasing information. A good counsellor will explain confidentiality to you at the beginning of counselling.
Myth #4: Counsellors just sit there, nod, and stay silent and will it take forever.
Reality: Many stereotypes and depictions of counsellors in movies have led to their image being "touchy-feely", reading your mind, detached, or ineffective. Most counsellors today are active and engaged, using questions, reactions, and interventions to help you move towards your goals. It will be important to consider how active you want your counsellor to be and inquire about this when working to find a counsellor that is right for you. Reality: The length of counselling depends on the client’s goals, motivation, and the severity of the problems brought into counselling. However, most counselling is short-term.
