About me

Hello and welcome, my name is Judith and I have been working as a relationship counsellor and therapist for over 20 years.

  • Are you looking for someone to talk to, someone who will listen to you in a caring, respectful and confidential way?
  • Are you having relationship difficulties or struggling to cope with the current changes in your circumstances?
  • Are you are in pain or depressed and concerned more generally about your life and the way that you are in the world.
  • Are you are feeling stuck and recognise that you often find yourself in similar situations that don't feel helpful to you.

Please look at my website for much more information about the therapy I offer and why and how this might be what you are looking for just now. www.judithridley


if you decide to phone or email me, we can arrange an initial appointment over the phone or via zoom, where we can meet and decide if we would like to begin working together.

Choosing the right therapist is an important step and I include a link to a website which may offer you some guidance at this point.  

I look forward to meeting you.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

There is easy parking right outside the house and there are no steps or slopes to the door. My therapy room is on the ground floor. Telephone sessions are an option during the course of ongoing face to face therapy.

Availability

I currently have appointments available on weekday mornings starting as early as 7.30 am if required.

  • Due to Covid 19 I am currently working via telephone and online through zoom.
