Wendy McCarron RMBACP, FD (Open) Couns -Integrative Therapist
I am passionate about working with people and developing a therapeutic and relational connection. I very much enjoy working with clients and part of my passion is to find new ways of working with clients creatively to explore and focus on new insights and to maintain change.
I originally trained as an integrative therapist and through further education trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and have completed a Foundation Degree in counselling. Recently, I became a Supervisor for clinical supervision. I I worked at a Rehab centre and this grew my knowledge and passion of mental health issues, trauma and addiction.
I have accomplished facilitating group work and my training skills.
I enjoy composing psycho-educational material for sessions and constructing Power points on a range of topics. Working creatively, using expression through art and music, mindfulness.
When I am not working, I concentrate on my self-care, relaxing, reading, mediation or enjoying the fresh air.
How can counselling help you?
Firstly can I say thank you for taking the first step and looking at working with me in therapy.
Counselling can help with a broad range of personal issues or problems. It can give you the opportunity to explore, focus on new insights, develop new goals in your life and to clarify a new direction and way of living.
What to expect within a counselling session
Counselling sessions will involve you talking about personal thoughts and maybe sensitive feelings. I will listen and hear you with empathy, be non-judgemental and offer congruence and unconditional positive regard.
Who has counselling?
People from anywhere, facing a variety of problems can seek professional help at some time in their life. One of the rewards for me is to watch a person begin to explore and gain their own ideas to empower and develop a deeper understanding of self. Some stop striving for perfection and find the acceptance of self. Talking can help you to stay in good mental health and help you maintain the changes to assist you when you are feeling lower.

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.
