Niamh Read, MBACP, Prof. Diploma Counselling
I'm an experienced counsellor based in Nailsea, North Somerset.
I offer one to one counselling and work integratively using a number of approaches including person centred and psychodynamic.
I offer an empathic, supportive and safe space for my clients to talk through their issues and offer the opportunity for my clients to formulate their thoughts away from the distractions of modern life.
Because of the ongoing pandemic, I am only offering sessions via Zoom or telephone. Please call, text or email me to arrange an appointment for an initial consultation.
Training, qualifications & experience
Qualified from University of the West of England in May 2015 with a Professional Diploma in Counselling.
Registered Member (MBACP) of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
Member of BACP Private Practice.
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.
