Pippa Hadfield MBACP
Who am I?
I am a qualified counsellor working in both voluntary sector and private practice. I have volunteered for Cruse Bereavement Support since 2012, serving bereaved people, and for The Well Counselling in Malvern since 2017 where I've worked with a variety of issues from depression to relationship issues.
I'm currently in the process of launching my private practice under the name Hearing Hearts.UK. I'm also a Christian so I understand issues of faith, but I work with those of all faiths or none.
How do I work?
Often, talking to an experienced supportive listener who can provide a safe space is the starting point for helping you work through whatever issues are troubling you. I use a Person Centred & Integrative way of working to help you find the best way forward. I offer a warm welcome and a gentle non-judgemental approach so you can feel safe and respected.
I usually work face-face, but this isn't currently possible under Covid-19 restrictions. As soon as I can, I'll offer face-face again, but for now it's online or telephone sessions only.
I've also specialised in sex and pornography addiction, & have a particular interest in supporting those working in Christian ministry who are struggling with this issue, but of course you don't have to be a Christian or a minister to benefit from my expertise.
You are welcome to contact me if you have any questions: I'll be happy to answer with no obligation of your part. You can find my contact details below
What can I expect?
If you decide to do ahead, we'll have a free 30 minute telephone or video conversation to ensure I'd be a good fit for what you're looking for, followed by weekly sessions of 50 minutes each at £35 per session (payable in advance.)

Association for Christian Counsellors
The Association of Christian Counsellors is a professional body representing and setting standards for Christian counselling and care in the UK. The organisation is made up of various different membership categories, including Counsellor and Accredited, and requires all members working as counsellors to undertake Continuous Professional Development on a regular basis.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Christians in ministry
£35 per 50 minute session, payable weekly in advance. I offer concessions for student counsellors and those in need on an individual basis. I understand that not everybody can afford the usual going rate, so why not have a chat with me to see whether we can agree a fee that suits you?
