Diane Ferguson FDSC (Counselling); DipHE (Nursing); MBACP
Are you struggling right now? Do you need to talk but prefer not to burden those closest to you? Maybe you are looking for support for your child?
Capella Counselling is a safe place where you can talk in confidence, working through whatever it is that is troubling you. During the pandemic I am offering a choice of online (video or audio) or telephone appointments. I will resume face to face appointments in the future.
I can support you or your loved one with issues such as:
- anxiety and depression
- panic attacks
- low self esteem
- difficulties at home, at work, or at school
- relationship difficulties
- loss, bereavement
- feelings of loneliness.
You may be here because you are concerned about yourself or a loved one. It may be your son or daughter you are seeking help for. I understand how worrying it can be if your child is troubled and unhappy. I am able to work with you to support your child manage school, friendships, build self-esteem and emotional resilience.
If you would like to discuss if counselling is right for you or someone you care about, please do not hesitate to give me a call.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
