June Morton Counselling
I'm a qualified, experienced Integrative Counsellor, having worked in mental health in the community and in a GP setting for 16 years. I offer face to face and telephone sessions.
I've successfully helped clients with depression and anxiety; clients who are stressed and distressed; angry clients and clients who have suffered a loss (human, animal, home, work- related, status, position) - to gain new perspectives and hope
In therapy, we explore and identify strategies that enable clients to regain control and autonomy and to find a way forward.
Counselling provides the opportunity to talk and to be heard, safe in the knowledge that you, the client, won't be judged. I facilitate and encourage clients to be curious about themselves, to not accept feelings or thoughts that they find troublesome.
I sit alongside my clients in their suffering and despair. We explore thoughts and feelings which are sometimes painful and difficult. I help clients who are simply "not themselves" and I support clients when they are faced with difficult decisions and am alongside them through difficult times.

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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
