Michele Smith MBACP Dip Couns
Hello. Thank you for visiting my profile.
My name is Michele and I am a Person Centred Counsellor based in Redditch and surrounding areas.
We all face challenges, dilemmas, fears, problems and issues in life. Sometimes we can cope well but at other times we may find ourselves struggling to cope and in need of extra support. This is especially true in these difficult times we find ourselves in. You may be feeling isolated away from family and friends, lost without your usual routines of work and social life. You may be struggling with anxiety or depression, coping with a bereavement after the loss of a loved one. Are you in a troubled relationship or going through a divorce ? Or have you lost your way and can't see the way forward and just feel stuck in the situation.
The aim of counselling is to provide a safe, confidential space in which to explore your feelings and thoughts freely, with support, empathy and understanding, without the fear of being judged. I can help you explore those difficult areas of your life, make sense of your feelings, explore opportunities to change and finding the right path to move forward.
Please be aware that all sessions are currently online using Zoom.

Introduction To Counselling Skills
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.

Sometimes in life we just need someone to listen, to walk alongside us on our journey. I offer sessions on both a short and long term basis. If you feel like this is something you could benefit from please feel free to contact me. I offer a free 15 minute telephone consultation with no obligation to book so we can discuss the issues you wish to address and what support I can offer you.
