Terri-Ann Fairclough, BSc (Hons), Couns.Dip, MBACP
I specialise in working with women who want to have more energy, sleep better, find purpose in their lives, more balance in their relationships and feel excited about life again.
Sometimes through life events such as becoming a mum, trauma, illness, bereavement, work issues or toxic relationship we can feel like we've lost our identity, body, career, friendships, lifestyle or the 'old me'. As a result we can be left feeling anxious, sad, depressed, undervalued, overwhelmed, resentful, angry, worried, stressed, lonely or judged.
Counselling is a great way to begin to look after yourself, start to build your confidence and accept that it's ok to put yourself first and say no to others without feeling guilty. Through our work together you can explore, deal and manage any issues that you may have in order to help you live a more calm, content and balanced life.
My support is confidential, safe, supportive and non-judgemental and I stronglt believe that through the relationship between us you can overcome what it is that has brought you to counselling. No problem is too big or too small and all thoughts, feelings and emotions are welcome. I will work with you at your own pace and your own agenda.
Taking 50 minutes out of your week will allow you the space and time to process and reflect what is going on for you as well as enable you to grow, develop and make the changes in your life you would like to make.
If there is anything more you would like to know I offer a free no-obligation 20-minute consultation to listen to what you would like to discuss and enable you to ask me any questions. Please contact me today and I will get back to you within 24 hours with my availability.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas I have worked with are:
- Boarding school experiences
- Moving away from home

I can deliver both short-term and long-term counselling and at your initial consultation we can explore your goals for counselling and how many sessions this is likely to require, then review as we go along.
- Initial 20 minute consultation by telephone - FREE
- 50 minute weekly counselling sessions held online or by telephone - £45
Counselling is the best gift you can give yourself because there’s more to you than being a mum.
