Victoria Carragher - MBACP
*I am currently only offering telephone or video therapy*
I see my aim as a therapist to create a safe and confidential space for us to collaboratively discuss anything that may be concerning you. You don't need to have a diagnosed mental health difficulty to benefit from therapy. Reasons for seeking therapy can range from anxiety, depression, trauma, to just feeling stuck, a little down, or hard on yourself.
I work intergratively which means I use a variety of counselling models to influence my practice. I am predominately trained in Person Centred Therapy. This is a humanistic type of therapy and works on the principle that you can reach your full potential and that I am your guide. I am also influenced by Compassion Focused theories in my practice, which look at how we treat ourselves, how others treat us and how we treat others, to build a more compassionate version of ourselves.

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.
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).

Areas of counselling I deal with
£40.00 per session
Free initial online session
An initial 20-minute conversation would be needed first, this would be free as it is an opportunity to see if we would work well together.
After this, I recommend weekly sessions and charge £40 per hourly session.
