Hello, and welcome to Reflect Counselling Services. I am Stef and this is my profile... "I can offer you a space to Breathe, to Reflect, to be Present and to just Be... Be yourself to Free yourself."
Therapy can be hard to describe and is better experienced. Before I became a Counsellor, I was a client. It can feel daunting to take the first step... Counselling is not about fixing the problems as such, it is about changing your understanding and view of the problems, enabling you to work towards living in a way that you find more satisfying.
I offer individual counselling via face to face, home visits, telephone and online.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
