Linda Ann Dodd Dip Couns MBACP (Accred) Dip Supervision, EMDR Therapist
Sometimes, something just isn't right. You don't need to have the answers, or even be clear about what you need as, hopefully, you can put your trust in me and my 12 years of experience to help you. All of us are so different so I have developed a range of skills so I can fit best with you. I work with adults, young people from age 11 and with relationships using the skills and experience that I have developed from dealing with issues such as depression, anxiety, bereavement, addictions, relationship issues, stress, as well as managing anger, panic, fear, trauma and child sexual abuse.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
