Trisha Henson. Registered. MBACP
I am an advanced qualified counsellor. I draw upon different modalities to best suit the needs of each individual person.
In a secure and containing environment I offer a space to think about present day life situations in relation to their associated anxieties.
I draw on my training in psychodynamic , person-centred , CBT, attachment theory and other models to explore what may as yet not be understood or known but may be experienced as confusing or overwhelming feelings. With the safety and containment of the counselling space, different thoughts and feelings can start to be explored .
With a psychodynamic approach, present day life situations can start to be thought about in relation to how earlier life situations may weave an unconscious thread which informs and influences present day action and reactions.
With care and guidance, time, patience and practice i will help to facilitate fluidity of thought so as a mental thinking space can start to be made, self -awareness can develop and a sense of resilience can be cultivated so as to help meet life’s different challenges .

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.
