About me

Hello, I'm Dee Maddox-Hinton, an accredited and registered counsellor and psychotherapist. I support individuals, couples, groups and families with their mental and emotional health.

With over 15 years assisting a wide range of clients with issues varying from addictions, abuse, anxiety, stress, relationship issues and much more, I can offer CBT alongside a person centred approach.

Together we will explore your feelings and identify ways to let go of those that are holding you back, change the way you feel and take back control of your life to realise your full potential as an individual and within relationships.

Counselling usually starts with 50-minute, once or twice weekly sessions as required by the client and reduces to fortnightly then monthly as progress is being made if so desired. Thereafter three monthly check-ins are also an option, or as and when new challenges arrive. Dates/times can be flexible to meet client's shift-work and family commitments.

Appointments can take place face-to-face at my comfortable and welcoming premises where there is ample free parking and a bus stop a few minutes walk away. Telephone, video call or email appointments are available as well as Walking Talking Therapy - where we hold your therapy session whilst taking a gentle walk in nature.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
