Dr Judith Green (Senior Accredited and Registered Member of BACP.)
Everyone experiences emotional difficulties or struggles at some point in life. At such times it can be very helpful to talk to someone. Counselling offers a safe and confidential setting in which to explore your difficulties, express some of the emotion surrounding them, consider your options and find a way of moving forward.
I offer both short term and long term counselling to individuals and couples. My practice is generic but includes work on relationships and family issues, bereavement and loss, health concerns, all types of abuse, work related issues, alcohol and substance use, anxiety and depression, personal development.
Prior to embarking on the counselling, I offer a 20 minute, totally free introductory and assessment meeting, where we will discuss how we would work together and discover if we both feel we could form a creative working relationship.
My orientation is Person Centred/Existential. The relationship that will hopefully develop between us will be the medium through which you will be able to make sense of your situation and your feelings and decide upon any changes you wish to make in your life.
I have great faith in this process based on my thirty years of experience and the hundreds of clients with whom I have had the privilege to work.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).

My fees are £50 per hour for individuals and £60 per hour for couples.
I work at my home address in a comfortable and private counselling studio which is situated at the bottom of the garden. There is off road parking and the studio is accessible to people whose mobility is limited. If you require it, please bring your own water as there is no plumbing in the building. Toilet facilities are available in the main house.
