Hello, and welcome to my profile.
If this is your first experience of looking for a counsellor/therapist, you may feel confused or anxious..
- Who should I choose?
- What qualities and qualifications should I look for?
Let me introduce myself to you.
I have worked in the field of counselling and psychotherapy for more than 20 years. In this time I have helped many different people with many different problems.
I would like to invite you for a FREE 30 minute initial consultation.
You may bring concerns with you such as:
- Is seeking counselling a sign of weakness?
- Does it mean I am mentally ill?
- Will I be able to afford it?
- How long will it take?
You will meet me online in a confidential, safe and non-judgemental environment, where we can discuss any concerns or questions you may ha
Over the last 20 years or so, I have worked with many clients referred to me by a local psychiatrist.
Here are some of his observations:
".......I cannot recall anybody who has had a bad word to say about their treatment with Wendy.
On the contrary she is highly thought of by both me and her clients.
She is hard working, flexible in her approach, intelligent, insightful and suitably direct when needed.
Her manner is warm and caring.........."
Dr Michael Rowlands MB ChB FRCPsych
Neither counselling nor psychotherapy can change the past.
But they can make a difference to the present and the future.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Most Saturdays 9am - 12.00.
Relationship problems are surprisingly common and can cause huge distress to those who experience them.
Relationships may be between unmarried partners, co-habiting partners, people in civil partnerships or married couples, any of whom can experience difficulties and conflicts in their relationship.
These may be internal, i.e.between the couple, or as a result of external pressures, such as an extended family or an affair.
Unresolved, these difficulties can lead to health problems, relationship breakdowns and divorce.
Despite this, people often find it difficult to talk about such personal issues. This may mean that the problems continue for years or until they kill the relationship. It does not need to be like this.
I have many years of experience in this field. Do come and see me. Don't leave it too late too seek help for your relationship.
Receiving good advice and support early on enables many people to work through their problems and find the solutions.
