Nathan Meredith Registered Member MBACP
Hello and welcome. I hope the information below helps you with exploring the site and finding the right counsellor for you. Please note that where covid19 restrictions impact on face to face working and premises, I am offering counselling through telephone or a video/audio/instant message platform.
As a counsellor I have 10 years of experience working in a number of statutory and charitable settings, with a wide range of clients and age groups. During this time I have worked with a variety of circumstances that have brought clients to therapy, including bereavement, terminal illness, family break up/transitional changes, adoption/fostering, self injury/harm, suicidal ideation, and abuse. My work has therefore helped people through trauma, overcome difficulties during/from childhood, manage stress brought on by sudden life changes, and in finding a more balanced mood.
I offer a free initial short consultation where we can get a better understanding of how you might find counselling useful and the kind of positive change you're looking for. Of course its also a good opportunity for you to consider whether my approach and manner is suitable for you.
Parental consent to attend counselling will be needed for people under 18.

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.

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).
