Natasha Walsh (Accred.MBACP) Seen & Heard Therapy
Hi my name is Tasha and I offer 1 to 1 counselling of an Integrative Approach for Adults, adolescences and children. I offer a warm, friendly and safe space (online also) for people to come and with my help make sense of what is going on for them, whether it be relationship issues, to low self esteem to issues around abuse etc.
I am an Accredited MBACP and follow the ethical framework. I use a range of methods depending on the individual ranging from talking therapy, play therapy and elements taken from other modalities over the years, I operate a confidential service. I have experience of working with adults and working with children in schools and private setting.
I have a special interest with working with Neurodiverse people and have trained in a specialist play therapy called Autplay Therapy devised specifically for Autism and other neurodivergent people. I have been successful in offering pre screenings/assessments for Neurodiverse conditions within school settings and have been successful in having many children placed on the CAMHS Neurodevelopmental pathway for full assessments. This is something that I can offer privately also.
I attend a monthly CPD/Supervision session specifically on ASD/ADHD.
I also have vast experience in working with Looked after/Adopted children and am DDP level 1 (Dyadic developmental psychotherapy) trained.
I am currently training as a Supervisor and am looking for therapist to supervise during this training at very low costs.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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).

call or email for further information
Please feel free to contact me via email at any time and I will endeavour to reply ASAP and within 24hours.
If you would like to call to discuss anything further or sometimes people feel more at ease agreeing to therapy once they have heard someone’s voice and know if they can connect to me then please do.
When you 1st get in touch with me I offer a 20 minute free get to know me meeting either on the phone or via online services. If you feel that i could be someone you work with then we would plan for a 90 minute assessment either in person or online. This session will be different to future therapy sessions as it will involve more questions as I take a a full client history, think about what you feel you want to discuss, what is impacting your life right now, difficulties, positives but also maybe changes you may want to make. We will discuss boundaries and confidentiality sometimes known as Contracting.
There is no obligation after this session to book more sessions I'm happy for you to process the assessment, have a think about how it went and if this is the right time for you and if I am the right person, there is no pressure.
If you feel you want to proceed we will the plan and book in how many sessions you may initially want, set a time to review this and a time and day that works for us both.
