Shannon Kelly. MBACP. Qualified Psychotherapist/Counsellor
I am a fully qualified and experienced psychotherapist / counsellor. I am a member of the BACP and I have the required professional indemnity insurance. I have regular supervision to ensure I can support you in the best way possible.
How do I work?
Finding the right counsellor for you can feel daunting, this is why I offer a free consultation over the phone so that you can ask any questions you may have, and make an informed choice if you would like to start working together.
I work with anyone aged 18 and above, both short and long term in a relational and integrative way, as I have the belief that we are all unique, and counselling is not one size fits all. This means I use range of skills / techniques from different approaches to ensure I work in a way that suits you personally.
I am passionate about empowerment and improving overall self confidence to help you develop a positive relationship with yourself and others.
I have years of experience in supporting others, including face to face counselling and telephone support. Alongside this, I have provided counselling to parents, providing me with an insight into their struggles and family life. I have worked with a range of different concerns including anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship problems, low self esteem, a difficult relationship with food & family issues.
You may know exactly why you want to start counselling, or you may be looking for someone who can support you to help you understand what is going on right now. You may also want to explore or address your past to help you gain answers. I provide a confidential and non-judgmental space to allow you feel safe enough to explore your thoughts and feelings at your own pace, and to feel heard and listened to.

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.
