Dee Maddox-Hinton - MBACP Accred, Dip.Couns
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 60-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.

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.
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.
