Valerie Barber - Turning Point Counselling
I have been trained as an integrative counsellor and I can use different approaches to suit individual needs. I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and abide by their code of ethics.
I can provide a warm, safe and comfortable environment in which you can tell your story. I will listen with empathy, be non-judgemental and I will be as honest with you as I can be.
If you prefer to talk in the open air we can walk together around my field in total seclusion.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at Devon and Cornwall counselling hub. I have a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and have experience of one to one counselling and group work. I have therapeutic experience of dealing with issues of anxiety, depression, loss and relationship issues.
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.
