Hi, I'm Perdita
I offer a compassionate space that enables me to work alongside you to explore new ways of understanding yourself better. I am an integrative counsellor, which means I can offer a wide range of techniques to promote your wellbeing.
Counselling is a talking therapy which enables us to explore your distress together.
Looking for a counsellor can be daunting, but I offer a warm, non-judgemental and safe environment in which we can work together to explore what's going on for you. I use an integrated approach to counselling which allows me to tailor the work to meet your needs.
I have experience working with young people and adults in both face-to-face and online settings, and am also a trained supervisor at level 6, meaning I have a good understanding of how to support you and your needs when it comes to supervision.
I am an accredited BACP member and follow their good practice guidelines and policies. I hold the same values in my counselling practice, ensuring I provide a safe environment that focuses on creating a relationship which allows you to grow and reflect in your practice to explore the work.
Our sessions would start with a free 20-minute telephone conversation where we can have a chat about what's going on for you and what you would like to work on once decided whether you feel comfortable working with me. Due to the current situation, I am offering online sessions over zoom, or walk and talk sessions.
If you would like to find out more or are interested in beginning your counselling journey with me, please do send me a message.
I also offer supervision.
I hold the same values as in my counselling practice in which to provide a safe environment that focuses on the creating a relationship that allows you to grow and reflect in your practice to explore the work. While ahearing to the BACP guidelines of good practice.

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.
