Vanessa Ponter Registered MBACP
I am an Integrative Counsellor with experience working with young people and adults suffering with emotional difficulties, stress, anxiety, addictions, loss, relationship breakdowns and mental health problems.
I offer a safe and confidential environment, set in a Private Practice for all age groups.
Counselling is somewhere for you to be heard, it will give you the time and space to explore your difficulties and allow you to work through these and make your own considered choices.

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.
