Janine McCafferty, MBACP (Accred)
Hello I'm Janine,
Do you sometimes wonder "this is not where I thought I would be at my age"?
For many of us life is busy and rushed, with not enough time to get through the ‘to do’ list, let alone think about the bigger things in life.
I provide counselling that gives you a chance to pause, untangle your thoughts and feelings, which can help to make sense of things, to understand yourself better, and to discover and connect with what matters most to you.
Choosing to start counselling is not always an easy decision. I offer an initial chat for free, to see if I’m someone you can talk to, and whether I can support you in the way you need. You can get in touch by sending an email using the buttons on this page, or call/text 07864 080 740 or 01242 808 017 - if you call me and I don't answer, please leave a message and I will get back to you as quickly as I can.
My fee for a one hour counselling session is £50.
Thanks for your visit, and I look forward to meeting you.
Thoughts from clients
"Thank you for believing in me when I couldn't see a way to believe in myself"
"Thank you so much for all your help, guidance and an ear to listen. It will be an experience I will always cherish because it got me through such a difficult time. Life changing. Thank you!"
"Thank you for your support Janine! I wanted to go to counselling for years and finally feel I have the tools to make steps and keep that ball moving, and a lot of that is down to you. It was very comforting to not feel so lonely at times and to feel your support throughout. Cannot thank you enough."
"Counselling has opened up a new world for me and it was the best decision I ever made!"
"I found my experience very positive and helpful. Janine was brilliant and helped me in so many ways."

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
