Hello my name is Theresa and I am an Integrative Therapeutic Counsellor.
If you are at a point in your life where you just need someone to talk to, in a safe and confidential environment, then I can offer you that space where you are able to be free to be yourself. I work to your agenda, which means that our sessions will always be about you and what you want to talk about. My core modality is Person-Centred but through my training I can utilise other skills such as Psychodynamic and Existentialism. I am a warm, caring and empathic listener who will treat you with respect and make no judgements about any concerns you may wish to discuss.
If you would like to get in touch with me then please do send me an email, or I offer a free 15 minute telephone consultation, just so you can talk about what is on your mind and for me to tell you a bit about my approach to counselling. If you are happy to continue then we will set up a second session and then arrange to see you on a weekly basis.

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.
