Geraldine O'Brien MBACP
I am a Person Centred counsellor whom is passionate about helping people to either find peace, answers to their questions or their authentic selves. My therapy is offered in a safe, confidential and understanding environment. I believe in the importance of understanding the person and what they are presenting and of building a trusting relationship from which we can work together holistically at your desired pace. This promotes us to figure out together your thoughts, feelings and presenting issues which allow for personal growth and a new way of thinking.

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.
