Trish Nisbett - Snr Accred Counsellor and Supervisor (BACP),Training for PGCE
Life presents us with all sorts of challenges sometimes in these difficult situations we feel overwhelmed and unable to cope. Counselling can offer a secure safe place to work through these challenges and help you find the answer within yourself, so you can cope again. I provide a confidential, non judgemental safe place to build a therapeutic relationship, in a person centred way. As every client is unique I like to work on many different levels, sometimes using art and image or metaphor to help you explore yourself and examine feelings thoughts and motivation to gain understanding.
Currently I work for the NHS as a Bereavement Counsellor, previously I have been a trainer and worked for Childline as a Supervisor, also worked as a counsellor with Young people in care.
I am a professional member of the BACP and work within their ethical framework for good practice and undertake continuous self development to expand my skills. I also attend regular Supervision to help develop my practice and ensure I am working ethically with all clients.

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.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Counselling is a process that seeks to help us focus and understand more clearly on the issues that concern and trouble us. My role would be to offer support to understand your feelings, I will respect your values choices and beliefs.
Bereavement: If you have experienced the death of someone who was important to you, you might find it difficult to adapt to the changes happening in your life right now. During your bereavement it is important to find ways to mourn the loss and express grief. It is a time when we feel confused and experience powerful emotions, accepting that your loss has really happened, experiencing the pain that comes with grief, and trying to adjust to a new lifestyle and learning to reinvest your energy in a positive way.
I live on a farm which is in a very quiet location, the counselling room is quiet and undisturbed. There is plenty of parking, and if you wish to sit in the grounds after the session to reflect on how you feel the donkeys would be glad of your company.
