About me

Hi my name is Judith and my aim is to identify deeply rooted patterns within your relationships and uncover ways in which you can communicate in a more positive way. This will help you understand your differences and what may be causing the problems. By improving communication within your relationships, whether it be personal, professional or social, you can build stronger relationships thereby breaking the cycle that has been repeated, possibly over generations. 

I specialise in relationship problems and identifying ongoing patterns in relationships in the systems you are in, for example your work place, family or friends. I will provide a safe space in which you can explore your differences and identify where you can achieve better communication thereby gaining control and initiating and achieving positive change. 

My background in working with challenging behaviour, ASD, and Attachment issues has given me an insight into how problems during childhood can impact on our behaviour as an adult. My person centred training also allows me the flexibility to work with depression, anxiety, low mood, stress, anger and low self-esteem. Or it could be you are looking for a safe space to talk, explore and reflect. I provide counselling on a one to one basis or couple's counselling at a place most convenient to you, whether it be at my office or online (Skype, Zoom or telephone). The main focus is for you to be comfortable and safe. BCS Mental Health Service is an ethical organisation with the goal of providing accessible face to face counselling and psychotherapy. I have daytime and evening appointments available and I am happy to discuss arranging convenient appointment times with you.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Further information

I will promise to show you empathy, trust and a belief in you and your ability to achieve positive change. In order to initiate positive change I will ask you to explore, what I believe you already have inside you, in order to reach your full potential and regain control. I work with anxiety, depression, generalised anxiety, social anxiety, low self-esteem and low confidence, panic attacks or just feeling low and sad. I also work with families, couples counselling or individuals. I provide a non-judgmental and safe space for you to work through your issues with empathy and understanding.
