Poppy Bishop MBACP Humanistic Counsellor with Distinction

About me

We’re all human and life is filled with many expectations and problems placed upon us by others, ourselves and some we have no control over. These can range in severity and intensity. Sometimes traumas from our past can effect our present and the issues we face now can effect our futures. Together we’ll discover and plan a path forward.

I offer counselling sessions for individuals, couples, families and young adults all from my private practice in Overton, Nr Basingstoke, Hampshire.

You will find more in-depth information on my website, so please take a moment when you have time to have a look.

Training, qualifications & experience

Foundation degree in Humanistic Counselling based on Transactional Analysis with Distinction

I have worked with clients from all walks of life. This has provided me with a deep insight and a practical view of the problems that people are facing in historic and current times. Whether it is depression due to lack of respect and recognition at work, personal health, death of a close family member, emotional distress due to separation, loss of a job, or any other issues that is affecting your every day life.

Because the range of challenges that people face in their lives is so diverse, I take an integrated approach to counselling – drawing on humanistic, person centred, psychodynamic and CBT theories. I see the counselling process as collaborative – we will work together to establish your aims and objectives and build a plan to not only achieve them but gain the tools to overcome problems you’ll face in the future.

Aside from my private practice, I have been working within the NHS Hampshire Hospitals Foundation Trust since 2009 as the lead counsellor and manager of voluntary counselling team for cancer services and palliative care. As part of my role as Lead Counsellor I manage a team of counsellors throughout our 3 Hospitals. I also run psychological skills training days for Doctors, Nurses and Consultants that work within Cancer and Palliative Care Services for the Trust.

Member organisations


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.

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
