Hello, my name is Natalie and I welcome you to my profile.
Life is tough! As a human being, we can sometimes become overwhelmed with all that it throws at us. This can manifest itself in many ways, and we can find our self in a place where we need some support to work things out. We often feel weak and ashamed when we feel that we are not coping and it can create uncomfortable thoughts, feelings and behaviours that impact our life.
I aim to offer a safe space and relationship where you can explore the experiences, and the emotions attached to those that have led you to where are today.
It may be that you need a few sessions to work through a specific or current issue, or maybe a longer period of time to explore deeper more long standing issues. Whatever the case, the space I offer is for you to use in a way that best suits you, without the fear of judgement and prejudice.
Please feel free to contact me if you need any more information or to arrange a Free 30 minute confidential consultation where we can talk about how we could work together, and I can answer any questions you may have. There is no obligation or pressure to book future sessions immediately after the consultation. You can contact me again, if or when you feel the time is right for you.

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.
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.
