Kelly (Tilly) Loughnane
My name is Tilly. It is my passion and life work so far in helping others to achieve mental wellness, and further to alleviate self-suffering. I see counselling as a guide. So being on a journey together, where my clients bring their difficulties and I bring my professional knowledge/skills, unconditional positive regard and empathy. I believe people have the capability to bring their inner resources and expertise regarding themselves. Yet through building confidential trust in a therapeutic relationship/setting and trust in the counselling process, together we can achieve self-growth. I will bring the nourishing ingredients of training, experience, compassion, nurturing, empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard, you will bring your life
Having someone to listen to you and understand you on an emotional level with intense meaning, can be a very enlightening experience,
How I Work
My approach is humanistic, relational and integrative. I use my knowledge and training to assist in my approach to meet my client's individual needs
Therapy can guide client's, raise awareness and promote healthy well being. I offer a safe, empathetic and non-judgmental environment, to assist in nourishing my client's journey into self-growth. We cannot unchanged the past but together we can work on the 'here and now'.

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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
For a 50 minute session I charge £40 an hour. Currently available on a Monday and Friday. please inquire for time availability.
The first session will be an initial assessment to ascertain an alliance of working together. I offer open-ended counselling with reviews, to acquire feedback, length of therapy, goals of therapy and evaluation on the effectiveness of therapy.
