Isabelle Whitby MBACP
I have been trained as an Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and in the Application of the arts.
I offer both long and short term therapy, in a confidential and client led environment, that focuses on providing a space that is both supportive and sensitive to your needs. I aim to build a safe environment so that clients are able to explore their life and areas of distress, enabling you to discover the right path.
Integrative means that I am able to adapt to the individual needs and their particular issue, drawing from a range of different approaches such as; (CBT, Attachment theory, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt therapy). Sometimes I use the arts in creative interventions within the therapeutic process. The use of creativity can offer powerful insights and some people find it easier to express themselves this way.

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 initial session gives both you and I a sense of how I work and to answer any questions you may have, such as what your aims are of therapy and understanding confidentiality.
The private practice I work in offers disabled access to the building, free parking across the road from the practice and a waiting room.
