About us

We are a group of experienced counselling and psychotherapy practitioners who live and work in different parts of Cumbria helping people find a way forward through issues of Anxiety, Depression, Addiction, Relationships and other emotional difficulties at home or in work.

Sean works  in Penrith,, Christopher in Barrow-In-Furness,  Richard  in Egremont, Rohhss in Carlisle & Joan in our Lancaster practice.

We offer counselling, psychotherapy, life coaching and personal development to individuals, couples and groups. We also give advice and training to private and public organisations, companies, and health and educational services.

How we can help you

All of us deal with the uncertainties of life in our own individual ways – but there are times when some of us benefit from reaching out and accessing the support of someone who can offer a different perspective from family or friends.

Whatever concerns you may be presently dealing with, you don’t need to feel alone. Over the years we have sensitively and successfully helped many people overcome numerous difficulties.

We always adapt a course of therapy to individual needs.


Training, qualifications & experience

Our therapists are all BACP accredited counsellors/psychotherapists  qualified and insured to practise.  We adhere to the BACP and/or UKATA Codes of Professional Practice and Ethics.

Member organisations *

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.

We have verified that at least one professional at this organisation is registered with the relevant professional body.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Accessibility varies between locations...check with individual counsellor
