Hello my name is Darren Boyle I am a registered and Accredited member of the BACP
Face to Face counselling now available with social distancing in place along with telephone counselling and Video calls if this is your preferred method of contact.
Counselling will provide you with the space to explore any concerns or worries you may be experiencing with complete confidentiality offered from beginning to end. Unresolved issues can create further stress and anxiety if not challenged and are often better discussed in a non judgmental environment to enable you to make decisions that may change how you feel.
Making a decision to bring counselling into your life can in itself be a challenging and frightening step to make. To ease these concerns we can speak on the phone to discuss your first appointment and venue details.
I offer face to face counselling in a safe and welcoming setting which is easily accessible. Location of venues for appointments can be discussed and tailored round your needs to ease any concerns about privacy.
Weekend appointments are available should you find it difficult to find time on a week day.
My approach is to work within your needs and find possible solutions which will help you move forward in life.
I offer sessions to suit your needs, short term (6 sessions) which can work effectively and are humanistic and solution focused, or longer term sessions when required.
As a registered member of the BACP I work closely to their ethical guidelines to enhance and inform my practice.

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.
