Lois Powell MBACP Registered Dip.Psych.Couns. & Clinical Supervisor
In life’s journey we experience many ups and downs with issues we find difficult to cope with. To have someone there who’s warm, supportive and non judgemental can help to make that journey a little easier.
To be heard and understood can aid in the process of understanding our inner feelings and emotions and help us to find successful ways of managing the difficulties that life throws at us.
I can offer a safe and confidential place for you to share, explore and work through those difficulties which may be causing you distress.
Due to COVID-19 I’m currently offering telephone and online sessions.
I am a qualified integrative psychotherapist, which means I work using different theoretical approaches, combining elements of Person-Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Transactional Analysis (TA) and Psychodynamic.
I believe we are all unique individuals with different needs and by having the flexibility to access different approaches we can work with what best suits you. You may be experiencing relationship issues, anxiety, stress, depression or just being stuck. We can work together to address these issues and help you to move forward.
I believe that each and every one of us has the potential to grow and change and live a more fulfilling life.
I can offer short term or long term counselling depending on your needs. Some people come for counselling and find they can resolve their issues within 6, 8 or 10 weeks and some find they need longer, once they begin to work through their difficulties. There is no time limit, just a process to fit your needs.
I work with Adults, Young People, Couples, Parent/Child relationships and groups. Please see my website for more details. www.loistherapy.co.uk

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.

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).
