About me

Hello my name is Vanessa Tyrrell and I'd be happy to help you begin your therapeutic journey.

I'd like to assist you in meaningful therapeutic conversations about the things that are troubling you, within a safe, confidential, empathic space.

You are not alone, together we can facilitate a shift towards the lasting and favourable change you are hoping for. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I am qualified to work with both adults and young people (aged between 12-18 years of age) having undertaken a level 5 Post graduate specialist training in this area

Therapies Offered

My core, theoretical model is Integrative, which enables me to adapt the therapy according to the individual and specific needs of the client. In this way I can bring in other theoretical concepts, which are solution and compassion focus concepts to enable the client to explore the things that brought them to their current circumstances and thus enable them to move forward. My main theoretical modalities are therefore:

·         Integrative

·         Person Centred

·         Psychodynamic

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

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).

Following consultation the first session gives you and I an opportunity to begin the process of getting to know one another, for you to understand how I work and an opportunity to decide if you’re comfortable and feel able to continue to work with me. It also enables me to consider whether I can offer you what you are seeking, and if this isn’t possible, I will be able to guide you to finding a more appropriate practitioner.

Wheelchair user access
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.
