Eleanor McCartney (FD Counselling) MBACP
Counselling is a talking therapy and can be powerful in enabling you to come to your own conclusions and take your own decisions. Counsellors recognize that no two human beings are alike or have the same experiences so the therapy offered can be tailored to an individual need. The aim of counselling is to help you talk about a difficulty and find a way forward that is appropriate to you as an individual.
The benefits of counselling are:-
- to provide a supportive and non-judgemental environment to talk about and explore difficult feelings
- to enable you to come to your own conclusions about feelings, behaviours and experiences.
- to enable you to make appropriate decisions yourself based on the insights you have gained through the counselling process.
I qualified as a counsellor in 2011 and I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I work with clients using an integrative approach which includes Person-centred, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. Most of my experience is working with clients who have presented with problems which include Grief and Loss/Bereavement, Anxiety, Depression, Relationship and mental health issues. I also have experience in working in young people aged twelve to eighteen years, Cruse Bereavement Care, the Prison Service and in a Community setting.

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.

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).
