Lauren Grice-Lowe FdSc Counselling, Reg. MBACP
For so many of us, life can be challenging. You might feel anxious, depressed, frustrated, stuck, alone, angry, stressed, sad, or many of these at once. Perhaps you have had a recent change in your life that has brought on these feelings; maybe you feel you’d like to know more about yourself, or things might have been getting increasingly difficult for you over time. Whatever is going on for you, my role is to support you in working through your difficulties, helping you to strengthen and grow your coping mechanisms. To get started, you can contact me by email, phone or via my website to discuss an informal, free 20-minute consultation where we can talk about what you would like to get out of counselling, and if you're happy to continue at that point, we'll set up our first 50-minute session together.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am experienced in providing both short and long-term therapy to adults and young people aged 16 and over.
My approach uses the Clarkson five-relational model as the basis of our work together, putting the emphasis on our relationship as a way to help explore your difficulties in a collaborative way.
I also have training in other counselling approaches, including Humanistic/Person-Centred, Gestalt, Object Relations, Transactional Analysis, Transpersonal and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques, which means I can tailor my approach to suit the needs of individual clients.
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.
