Stephanie Cracknell Psychotherapeutic Counsellor PGDip MBACP
I am a BACP registered Psychodynamic Psychotherapeutic Counsellor offering long and short term in-person, video call and telephone counselling.
I offer you a space to talk about whatever is important to you at the time, at a pace that feels right for you.
All of our experiences shape who we are today. We all have patterns and ways of behaving, thinking and feeling - some of these we’re aware of and some we aren’t. During counselling, you’ll have the opportunity to explore and make sense of your current situation, relationships, thoughts, feelings, emotions and behaviours. By thinking about how you’ve been shaped by your previous experiences, relationships and difficult life events, a greater understanding of yourself emerges; with this awareness it becomes easier to accept the person you are, change what you would like to change and grow as a person.
By you and I building a trusting, safe relationship together, you’ll have a place to feel heard, valued and find meaning without judgement. This can lead to different and healthier ways of responding to situations and relationships, a feeling of being more whole, acceptance of yourself, greater self-esteem, and more confidence and happiness in life.

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.
