Jude Gaddes B.A (Hons) PG Dip. Integrative Psychotherapy BACP (Accredited)
Coming to see me isn’t like a conventional experience of visiting the doctor or the dentist. Your emotional wellbeing is my priority and the time is yours to explore what’s going on in your life.
My therapy room is a campervan. Tucked discreetly behind my house, it is a safe and welcoming venue to sit and talk. It is also ideally situated to take advantage of the soothing benefits of nature.
My counselling experience has spanned working with all age groups from 8 - 88, in settings ranging from primary schools to prison. The diversity of my experience means that I feel I can offer a genuinely non-judgemental space to all my clients.
Sometimes life can feel unbearable. Anxiety, depression, fear and low self esteem can eat away at you. On the outside you may smile and look like you’re functioning, but in reality you're just going through the motions.
It’s okay to stop and give yourself time to understand what’s happening. Talking with a trained professional can help you find your way through a difficult period in your life.
I offer an initial session for us to meet and discuss how we could work together. During this period of social distancing I offer sessions via Zoom. There is no payment for the initial session and you are under no obligation to use me as your counsellor.

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.

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).
