Glenda Creighton, Adv.Dip, CBT Dip. Reg.MBACP, MNCS (Accred)
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I am an integrative counsellor, working in the profession for 10 years. I work from a person centred/CBT approach and am a Member of the BACP and am NCS Accredited.
Sometimes Life can become overwhelming and you struggle to find answers, a way forward or an understanding. I offer a relaxed, confidential and safe environment, where you can explore your challenges and learn new coping skills, I can help you to work through specific problems, helping you to take the first steps and challenge the obstacles that stand in your way. If you are struggling to cope with a situation past or present then I can help you to look at moving forward in a positive way, gain new perspective and develop a more positive outlook.
I work with a wide variety of issues
- low self esteem/ confidence,
- grief and loss,
- relationship issues,
- sexual orientation issues
It isn't always easy to talk with family and friends so I offer a non judgemental space where you can feel safe, respected and able to talk openly. You will have the time and space to work through your issues/s, face your challenges and start your journey forward. My practice is central to Carrickfergus and also covering surrounding areas of Greenisland, Whiteabbey, Larne and Ballyclare.

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.
