Holly Crump BACP registered (MBACP Dip.Counselling)
Update - I AM OFFERING REDUCED RATE TELEPHONE AND ONLINE COUNSELLING DURING THIS PERIOD OF COVID 19
Are you yearning for peace of mind? Do you feel stuck, overwhelmed or lost?
Is it clear to you that 'change' is needed in your life but you just have no idea how to go about making that change?
Why don't we investigate together!
I am a fully qualified, Integrative Psychotherapist and a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy)
I am genuine, warm and compassionate, and believe that every individual has the potential to grow into the best versions of themselves.
It is of paramount importance for me to get a sense of what is really going on for you. To see, and get a feel, of how life is for you from your perspective, so I can then support you in gaining the capacity and confidence to support yourself.
I want you, as my client, to feel safe and heard, and my hope is that by the end of our sessions together, you will also feel empowered.
Counselling gives you the time and space to talk things through with someone impartial and non judgemental. It can give you greater insight and self-awareness that can result in long-lasting changes that can help you live a more fulfilled life, with an increased sense of well-being. It can give you the opportunity to gain new perspectives on your concerns, enabling you to understand yourself better, and evaluate your options more clearly.
I truelly believe it can be possible for anyone to find a renewed sense of direction and zest for life.

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.
