About me

My name is Trudi Mason, I am a Registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, I am a fully qualified and experienced Counsellor, I have been in practice for the last nine years. I am qualified to work with Children, Adolescents, Adults, Couples and Families. Alongside my private practice I work as the Senior Counsellor for Weymouth College, I am also a registered practitioner with Relate Dorset and South Wiltshire.

I offer an empathic, non judgemental confidential space to allow you to explore issues which may be causing you difficulties. All our stories and experiences are unique to us as individuals. Counselling gives you the space to breath, reflect and explore patterns of relationship behaviour, to explore trauma past or present, issues that you may have coped with previously but now feel overwhelming.

I book sessions in blocks of 8, which can be extended for longer term work.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.
