Esther Richardson - MBACP
There are times when life can be difficult, and it can seem to be challenging and overwhelming. The process of counselling gives you space and time, in a confidential environment to consider your perspective and make better sense of your feelings, emotions and fears.
I will help you to explore your thoughts and discover clearer meaning and understanding.
It's important that during this process you remain an individual and we find a way for you to express your thoughts and feelings, making it's essential to work with a flexible approach tailoring our work to your needs.
As a Qualified humanistic psychotherapeutic counsellor, I offer confidential face-to-face counselling and psychotherapy both on a short term and longer-term basis. I provide a no-obligation consultation to assess your needs and answer any questions you may have. Ensuring you remain in control.

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.
