Heather Oglesby BA (Hons) MBACP
I work from a confidential and professional space based in Newmarket and provide counselling for a wide range of issues for individual adults. It is a comfortable space where we can safely explore any issues that you have in confidence.
I recognise that trying to find the right counsellor for you can be a journey in itself; it can be difficult to talk about some things and can feel like a big step to take. During our counselling sessions I will gently encourage you to explore your issues with a non-judgemental approach.
Having experienced different approaches to counselling myself during my training I understand how important it is to find the right fit and working style that is the best for you. I trained as an Integrative counsellor covering Humanistic, Psychodynamic, and Jungian therapy; my approach also includes the use of creativity to help people who may find it difficult to find or voice their emotions. Using these theories I can tailor my approach to fit with what works best for you.
The relationship is very important between a counsellor and a client and so in the initial session there is no obligation to return but if you feel like we have a good connection and would like to work together we would meet on a weekly basis and at a set time (if possible).
I have a particular interest in working with people who may be struggling with their gender or sexuality as this is something I am passionate about.

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.
