About us

Affordable Counselling Service..

Chris and Emma set up their counselling practice in the area in 2019.  It has now become one of the most popular and respected practices in and around the Bishop's Stortford area. Alongside Private Practice, Emma provides counselling within an NHS Trust and Chris offers counselling to students in two of Bishop's Stortford's most respected schools. They are both trained to Masters level and continue to develop their skills and understanding of theory and practice.

Early in 2021 they decided to launch an 'Affordable Counselling Service,' with the hope it would bring counselling services to those in the greatest need, but with the tightest budgets.

If you choose to seek support through this service, you will be fully assessed by Chris or Emma before being allocated to a counsellor they think will meet your needs.

The counsellors delivering the Affordable Counselling Service are hand picked by Emma and Chris and trained on BACP approved courses. Our counsellors are members of the BACP or similar, fully insured, in personal therapy and under full clinical supervision. Your counsellor will have already qualified and be working towards accreditation or nearing the end of their training and building clinical hours.

You will be offered 12 face to face sessions in our Therapy Centre in Stansted Mountfitchet and this will be assessed at ten weeks.

You may be the ideal client to work at a deeper level with our Psychodynamic Counsellor which would allow you to continue for at least one year in good quality therapy.

Member organisations *

BACP

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.

We have verified that at least one professional at this organisation is registered with the relevant professional body.
