Nina Smith (MBACP) - Peacevale Counselling
It's never too late to be who you might have been. (George Eliot.)
I provide a warm, engaging space for you to explore any issues that are troubling you, or that are disabling you from engaging fully with life. That might be a tricky relationship, depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse or sometimes just a lack of direction or a life transition.
There is no judgement, just a deep desire to help you to function fully.
I work as an integrative counsellor, which means that I draw on many traditions in a manner that best suites your needs, and is respectful of your boundaries. At all times, this is a collaborative process.

I have had careers in Nursing and Management Consulting, working across many strata and with different kinds of people in many countries. I chose to train as a counsellor after having had successful and groundbreaking counselling that gave me insight into my life and my choices. I love working with people from all walks of life and being able to negotiate tricky transitions, life choices or lack of direction with you
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).
