Louise Calver Dip. Couns Reg MBACP
Evolve Therapy Services aims to offer affordable and effective counselling in Medway for adults and teenagers- in a beautiful and tranquil summer house location in Strood, Rochester.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I work within their framework to ensure a safe and ethical practice for you.
My person centred way of being enables you to achieve your goals and explore elements of self in a safe and confidential space- free of judgement. I offer an empathic environment to walk your journey with you, so you can feel heard, listened to and understood. In an accepting environment, we can explore how life is for you, understand your feelings on a deeper level and look at any issues which may be affecting you.
Sessions can be short term, or long term, all depending on your needs. In order to book in for an initial session, or if you'd like to know any more about me, counselling or the process, please contact me via email, text or telephone... I am here to support you, through expressing your feelings, in the hope to achieve a happier and brighter future.

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).
