Natasha Meredith MBACP PgDip
Welcome, I am Natasha, I am a qualified counsellor registered with the BACP, working from a humanistic and integrative therapy model.
I am based in Chasetown, Burntwood and work with adults and young people, providing a safe, confidential, emphatic and non judgemental environment in which to work through your issues together.
I meet with clients in a specially set up consulting room during the daytime or evening, it is a relaxed and comfortable setting. I cover a range of issues including, but not limited to; depression, anxiety, bereavement, relationship issues, bullying and stress.
The initial session is a free assessment, up to half an hour long, where we will briefly discuss the issues that you are facing and what strategies we can use in order for you to move forward. We can also discuss the number of sessions required and how regularly these sessions would take place.
Deciding to work together need not be arranged on that day and I encourage clients to take time to decide how they wish to proceed.
Following the initial assessment all other sessions will be up to 50 minutes long.
Feel free to contact me for a no obligation chat to see whether the services I provide would be suitable for your needs.

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.
