My name is Mandie and I have been working as a Transactional Analysis (TA) counsellor for over nineteen years and I have extensive experience counselling both by telephone 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 practicing 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 Anxiety, Stress, Panic Disorders, Communication Problems, Redundancy, Career Development. I also work with more personal issues such as General Anxiety Disorder, Low Self Esteem, Lack of Confidence, 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

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.
