Lottie Berryman, Dip. Couns (MBACP)
Hello, I’m Lottie
I am a counsellor who offers a confidential, relaxed and supportive service in Castle Cary and Yeovil.
There are many reasons why you may be considering counselling. For some this may not be your first experience and for others counselling might be unfamiliar and new to you. What ever your situation, I believe finding the right therapist for you is important, so please explore my site and feel free to contact me if you would like anymore information before deciding if I am the right therapist for you.
People seek counselling due to; life events, relationship issues, anxiety, depression, mental well being, work related stress and societal pressure, to name a few.
As a Person Centred counsellor, I believe that we are all experts of ourselves. My role is to help people gain an insight and understanding of their feelings. I draw upon different counselling approaches in order to offer tools, techniques and strategies to provide support that suits the individual.
If you have any questions, would like more information or would like to book a free initial session please either text, call or email me and I will be in touch within 24 hours.
Training, qualifications & experience
I began my training as a Mental Health Nurse in 2010 at Bristol UWE and since then have trained and graduated from Strode College with a Diploma in Theraputic Counselling and a Level 5 Diploma in Psychotheraputic Counselling.
I have gained extensive experience over the past few years, working in a variety of different settings. I volunteered with CRUSE bereavement care whilst also completing their bereavement awareness course. Currently I volunteer with the Family Support Team at St Margaret’s Hospice and continue to carry out professional development.
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.
