Natacha Thompson MBACP
Qualified Counsellor experienced in working with adults and young people.
Hi, I'm Natacha, I am qualified to Master's level and experienced in working with both adults (individuals and couples) and children using a person-centred approach. This means that the work we do will be tailored very specifically to your needs as an individual. I also have experience of working with a wide range of issues such as anxiety, depression, work related stress, bereavement and abuse.
Working together, we will collaborate to identify the areas of your life that are affecting your wellbeing and explore and reflect on these challenges. The aim is to work towards increased self-awareness and self-acceptance, which in turn helps to develop confidence and trust in oneself so that future challenges are easier to manage.
If there is anything you are unsure on, please contact me to discuss your concerns.

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.

As well as working with those in crisis and I offer workshops and talks for those looking for more general personal development (e.g. exam stress, communication skills, self-awareness), or who aren't yet sure if counselling is for them.
