Roxanne Bigwood - MBACP Registered
Are you going through a difficult or challenging time in your life, finding it hard to come to terms with something or struggling with difficult thoughts and feelings about yourself or something that you have experienced? You may be feeling worried, scared, empty or sad and may have lost interest in life. You may feel alone in your problems and not sure where to turn. You are not alone. I can help you feel better, take back control of your life and find new ways of coping. My specialist areas are anxiety, stress, depression, low self-esteem, confidence issues, unhealthy coping mechanisms, trauma and abuse.
I offer you a warm, confidential, safe space where you can talk freely about what you are going through. To feel heard, understood and accepted as you are. I will support you in a non-jugemental way to make sense of what you are experiencing and work with you to find out what is causing these feelings and help you take back control of your life. Through our work together, I will support you to build a more trusting and compassionate relationship with yourself, build self-esteem, find new ways of coping, make long lasting changes and start moving forward with your life.
You may be feeling anxious about choosing a counsellor and knowing which one is right for you can seem overwhelming. To help you feel more comfortable, I offer a free 15 min telephone/online video consultation where we can discuss your counselling needs and gives you a chance to ask any questions you may have before you decide to start therapy.
Please contact me by email or phone to arrange your consultation for a time that's convenient for 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.
