Geraldine Taylor Dip. Counselling, MBACP Reg.
Sometimes life can feel a real struggle: If you are feeling anxious, confused, depressed or overwhelmed, I offer a safe and confidential space to work on any issues that are troubling you, with warmth and compassion.
Counselling is not about me telling you what to do. We will work together to help you explore, untangle and make more sense of your feelings, your thoughts and your experiences. This will help you to gain a greater understanding and acceptance of yourself as a person.
I am a fully qualified counsellor and Registered Member of the BACP. I have experience of working with adults, young people and children aged 9+.
Call, text or email me to arrange an initial chat about how I work. We can then set up an initial session to talk about your needs and what you would like to gain from counselling. Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile and I look forward to speaking to you.

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).
