Beccy Stremes Registered MBACP (Accred)
I am a BACP accredited counsellor with fourteen years experience of counselling, I use a blend of tools from different counselling approaches, so that I can provide you with a unique, individually tailored service that is best suited for your needs. I work with individuals online and via the phone and am available in the daytime and evenings up to 8pm.
I offer a safe comfortable confidential space for you to explore issues that are affecting you in your life. The relationship we build is based upon trust, genuineness and the ability for me to explore your world from your eyes. This then enables me to understand exactly how things are for you, and from that point, we can work together to focus on the areas that you are wanting to change in your life, or the areas that are causing worry and anxiety. I work in a non judgemental way, which means that my own values and beliefs are put aside in order to truly understand and hear yours. I work short term ( up to 6 sessions) or long- term ( open ended) depending on what you decide you need.
I offer Introductory sessions at £55, where we can explore the difficulties you are facing. This is a chance for you to see whether I feel like the right counsellor for you, before you commit to further sessions.

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.
