Judith M Bellaby MSc. MBACP Registered Counsellor Little Haywood Staffordshire
Hello, welcome and thank you for taking the time to take a look at what Time Counselling Practice has to offer you. I have experience of working in the NHS as a Registered Nurse for over 30 years then in 2010 I gained an MSc in Counselling Psychology. My experience as a counsellor has been six years working in a NHS Staff Support Service and in 2016 a decision was made to move into Private Practice; Time Counselling Practice began.
My decision to train as a Counsellor was driven by my nursing back ground working as a Registered Nurse in the NHS, I could see how there was a need to understand the relationship between our view of our health and how that is intricately linked with our sense of who we are and how and what we feel we have within our control.
How does that view fit with you? Do you believe that through gaining an understanding around your life experiences, whether they are health, work, anxiety or other related and exploring what they might mean to you on an individual level, is a move to help you with the reasons why you might be seeking counselling?
My aim here at Time Counselling Practice is to offer you a safe and confidential space where you feel understood and heard. We will work together to explore some of your life challenges that may be stopping you from being the person you believe you can be.
Due to Covid-19 I am not currently offering Face to Face Counselling Sessions, instead we will meet in our virtual meeting room using a video call internet platform

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.
