My name is Karen Aldridge, and I'm the founder and principal therapist at Time & Space, Longridge. Our aim is to provide our clients with the time and space they need to cope, change, accept and feel. To talk, and really be heard. To express emotion and feelings without fear or worry about acceptance or respect.
I have been a counsellor and mindfulness practitioner for over 20 years, and I believe wholeheartedly in the process. I never stop learning new ways of helping my clients because I know that everyone's needs are different. I will draw upon many different genres of counselling and other therapies to ensure that I provide an experience that works best for you.
During this period of isolation and Social Distancing,
I am offering both on line Video sessions and telephone sessions.
if you are affected financially, please speak to me about a range of concessions and payment options.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am qualified counsellor with a higher diploma in counselling, registered with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), and also have master practitioner qualifications and experience in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Mindfulness, Hypnotherapy and Reiki.
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.
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).
