Ingrid Geser, Dip Couns (Integrative); BA Hons Social Psychology; MBACP.
If you are thinking about counselling, it is very likely that life is causing you distress or is not fulfilling in the way that you would like. You might be in the middle of a crisis, or facing a life changing event like redundancy or bereavement. You might be struggling in an intimate relationship, or suffering after a traumatic experience and feel that, on your own, you can’t find a solution. Or you might feel stuck and don’t know where you are going with your life. This is where I can help. My experience as a therapist has shown me that our feelings of despair and hopelessness can be a catalyst for change and personal growth.
By providing you with a trusting relationship - a safe space in which you can talk openly without judgment - together we can explore the things that are troubling you. And through gaining a better understanding of yourself, you can make long-lasting changes that lead towards a more meaningful and satisfying life.
I am a qualified integrative counsellor. I believe that no single therapeutic approach holds the answers for everyone. Instead I use a number of well established psychological theories and choose the ones that are specifically tailored to benefit you as a unique individual.

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).
