Jummai Castle MA MSc (5 Minute Therapist) MBACP
I counsel individuals, couples and families. I work eclectically, integrating different schools of theory including systemic, psycho-dynamic and solution focused brief therapy amongst others during counselling sessions depending on what the client brings to the room and the issues that they are facing. I am passionate about relationships and recently started a YouTube channel called the '5 minute therapist' (in March 2018) where I look at different aspects of a relationship and shed some clarity into couple behaviours and how to get the best out of your relationship.
I believe that we can have enriching nurturing relationships with ourselves and others. At times life throws us curve balls and sometimes in a couple relationship there are factors known or unknown that can impact on our relationship with our partner and this could be issues for example from our childhood, a trauma or a past relationship that we need to process thoroughly with an experienced counsellor.
I am a registered member with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I currently work with Relate Northampton and have a high success rate with my clients.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have an MA in Relationship Therapy from the Relate Institute validated by the University of Hull. I also hold an MSc in Social Work from the University of London.
I undertake continuous training to ensure that I am being relevant and constantly improving my techniques to ensure that I offer my clients the best service.
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.

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).
