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 worked in the NHS for over 30 years as a Registered Nurse; in 2010 I gained a MSc in Counselling Psychology and subsequently extended my NHS career working as a counsellor in a NHS staff support service, where I worked with clients who would present with a wide range of life issues.
Working in the NHS in my role as both a Registered Nurse and a Counsellor, I know and understand the difficulties and pressures working in a large organisation can bring.
My aim here at the practice is to 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.
