Hello, I’m Judith, an experienced Counsellor and a Registered Nurse. My mission here is to offer you a safe and confidential space in which we can explore together what brings you to Counselling.
I have experience of working in the NHS as a Registered Nurse for over 30 years, in 2010 I gained an MSc in Counselling Psychology. My experience as a Counsellor began in 2008 where I spent eight years working in a NHS Staff Support Service, then in 2016 I made the decision to move into Private Practice; Time Counselling Practice began.
My decision to train as a Counsellor was driven by my nursing background. Working as a Registered Nurse in a busy NHS organisation. I noticed how there was a need to understand the relationship between how we view our health and how that is linked with our sense of who we are. Additionally, I had first hand experience of working in a large organisation and the stresses and the pressures that can bring to the staff across the workplace. It seemed a natural progression for me to embark on my Counsellor training in a mission to be able to help others gain their own ‘life toolbox’, and feel more able and equipped to embrace life’s challenges and questions.
How does that view fit with you? Do you believe that through gaining an understanding around your life experiences, exploring what they might mean to you on an individual level, is a move to help you understand 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.
