About us

Hi, thanks for taking the time to have a look at our profile and counselling centre. At Maple Leaf we have fully qualified counsellors, supervisors and trainers working with both adults and children in a friendly warm atmosphere.
Choosing a counsellor can be quite daunting so please feel free to give us a call with no obligation and we can discuss in confidence your reasons for wanting to see a counsellor and if you would like to make an appointment. All our counsellors are members of ethical bodies such as BACP or BABCP, orNCS and our centre is registered to teach CPCAB counselling and supervision training courses.

We offer personal one to one counselling using a wide range of therapies including; Cognative Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Transaction Analysis, Person Centred, Relationship, Rewind Therapy and Bereavement and loss.  These different therapies can help with a wide range of problems and concerns.

At Maple Leaf Counselling and Training Centre we provide a caring professional Counselling, Supervision and teaching service.

How counselling can help?

Our counsellors have a wide range of experience helping people with their problems such as; anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship difficulties, unemployment, OCD, work related issues, self esteem, bullying, body image, self confidence, mental ill health and anger issues. Counselling can help you to explore what is happening in your life, how you feel and what you would like to be different.

What to expect in your first session.

Whatever your problem, you will not be judged in any way. In the initial session we can explore what has brought you to counselling and look at what you would like to achieve.

Member organisations *


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.
