About me

‘There is a reason why you are here. 

I am ready to explore with you….be beside you as you find a way through what is emotionally happening for you….whatever that may look like, in a safe space.’

If you're in a place where what you're hearing is 'you're holding up well!', 'you're getting over it!' or you are telling yourself, 'you need to carry on' when actually you want to scream, hide or you're worrying what's next as it's just too much already; on top of that is guilt for feeling like this. This is an example of what the space is for.

Others have used this safe space to release the conflicting tension they are feeling, to begin an inside & outside move forward and have hope for what is next.

My name is Natalie and as your therapeutic counsellor, I can offer support with abuse, anxiety, bereavement, low self-esteem, losses, personal development, relationship difficulties and trauma. 

I consider what comes from the word ‘safe’ as important….including ‘to be able to share, what wants,...what needs to come out and to be heard & to be seen.’ 

A part of providing that safe, confidential environment for you, includes my experiences as a bereavement counsellor, as an NHS healthcare professional and as a registered BACP member incorporating their ethical guidance into our process. Some of the elements to join with what you bring to our space.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

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.
