Lindsay Cox-Prior - Via Vitae Counselling Services
I am a person-centred practitioner, which means client-led sessions, at the client’s pace, in a compassionate environment, focusing on any issues that you might want to work through in order to improve your mental health and functioning. You may not know what you want to discuss but have an awareness that things in your life are not going the way you want them to- we can work on that too, together.
I believe that it is really important to find the right counsellor for you- to that end I offer a telephone or face to face time limited session for your queries, free of charge, to assist you in making your decision about progressing with therapy and in choosing me.

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

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).
