My name is Mandie and I have been working as a Transactional Analysis (TA) counsellor for over twenty years and I have extensive experience counselling via telephone online and Face to Face. I am accredited with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) where I hold senior status,
I have a certificate in Essential Supervision Skills and I can provide clinical supervision to trainee and practising counsellors.
My core counselling training and the model that underpins my work is in Transactional analysis (TA) I believe it is important to have a wide range of tools and strategies so other models such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Solution Focused Brief Therapy inform my practice.
I have a special interest in counselling for work related issues, such as Work Related Stress, and returning to work following a period of absence, including a framework for developing a phased return to work plan. provide counselling in other work related areas as well such as Work Overload, Dissatisfaction with work/career, Communication Problems with managers, colleagues. customers etc. Redundancy and Career Development. I also work with more personal issues such as General Anxiety Disorder, Low Self Esteem, Lack of Confidence, Assertiveness and Phobia's. Because so much of our time is spent at work, problems in this area can impact on our personal, home and family life. Getting a better work life balance has a positive impact on our health and wellbeing
I offer an initial 20 minutes telephone consultation - this will provide you with some time to see if you want to work with me and if I can meet your needs.
I am also a BUPA recognised Mental Health Specialist

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.
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
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).
