Lauren Andrews MBACP (Registered)
Hi, my name is Lauren, I'm a fully qualified person-centred counsellor also offering CBT. I realise that people seek counselling for a multitude of reasons. By respecting your unique nature and situation I am able to offer a non-judgemental and empathic environment which can help you in sharing and exploring any problems and potential ways forward.
Counselling offers you the opportunity to consider issues that are impacting your life in a safe and confidential space.
The counselling relationship is a unique one being truly heard by another can be transformative and offers the chance for you to develop a deeper understanding of yourself which in turn can be empowering which can assist in overcoming problems.
Having experience within an NHS setting I have worked with individuals presenting with a wide range of issues including depression and anxiety. I also have particular experience working with survivors of sexual violence and domestic abuse. I offer short and long-term counselling and will tailor my approach to suit your individual needs.
Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss your needs if you feel I may be the right counsellor for you.

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.
