Jon Knowles MBACP
Do you have issues, dilemmas or situations that you are struggling to deal with or come to terms with? I am a fully qualified Person Centered Counsellor. I have dealt with many varying difficult issues, having counselled for 2 years with people looking to overcome their problems of the past and present, and build a much more fulfilling life. I am fully aware of how issues such as depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and confidence and what caused them, can have a real impact on your day to day life. I also have first hand experience of addiction issues. With me you will have a confidential, safe and empathetic space, you will be truly listened to in a genuine and completely non-judgmental way. I will show you that you are the expert on yourself and have the inherent ability to resolve, address and overcome your problems without being pressured.
Get in touch with me either by phone or email for an informal chat to see if you are happy for us to meet (at the moment this would normally be online) and after this I can offer you an initial session. This gives us a chance to meet and for you to be able to ask any questions you might have and gives me the opportunity to explain how I work. By doing this I hope that you will gain a clearer understanding of what counselling is and hopefully feel comfortable for us to work together. We would usually have weekly sessions however we can adapt according to your needs and we would conduct regular reviews to see how we are progressing.
I offer face to face (following government Covid 19 guidelines), online, telephone sessions and walking therapy (further details on this will be explained on initial contact). I look forward to hearing from you either by phone or e-mail

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).
