Pam Hardy BA, Reg. MBACP (Accred) Counsellor / Supervisor, EMDR Consultant
Please read my profile to help you decide about taking your first step towards getting help. I understand how difficult it can be and of course it's normal to feel anxious when meeting a counsellor for the first time.
Whatever issues you bring I will provide a relaxing and confidential space where we can work together to try to make sense of what has happened in your life. I can offer EMDR therapy, Rewind, TAT (Tapas Acupressure Technique) and integrative counselling in which I bring together all my knowledge and experience to help you with your difficulties.
In my 29 years experience of working with a wide range of people, ages and problems I have found these therapies can be effective in reducing symptoms in the present and addressing issues from the past. EMDR therapy can be especially effective for emotional, physical and sexual trauma. Rewind and EMDR may also be helpful for isolated distressing experiences for example a road traffic accident.
Along side my Private Practice I also worked in the NHS for 15 years. Previously I was a Counselling Tutor for Leicester University and have extensive experience with adolescents and young adults.
Please do contact me for an initial chat, via telephone or e-mail, with a view to making an appointment. I look forward to hearing from you.

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.
