Wendy Sneddon (PGDip, MBACP)
Do you feel unable to make decisions? Do you feel overwhelmed at times, anxious or are you feeling low and unhappy yet not able to understand why. At times life throws so much at us which can often feel too much to deal with. We live in our minds constantly feeling exhausted and almost separate from those around us.
I am a Person Centred Counsellor with a post graduate qualification in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have been a volunteer with a loss and bereavement charity for over 4 years. I previously worked as a counsellor with women's aid and currently with an association for mental health.
My background in Social Care and Training and Development for a number of years showed me everyone is unique and their experiences are individual to their lives. I fully believe labels are just that and do not define a person.
I will provide a calm environment and treat you with the dignity and respect you deserve as an individual. Our therapeutic relationship will be built on trust, empathy, unconditional positive regard and genuineness.
I will actively listen, reflect and provide a supportive, caring and non-judgemental space to enable you to collect your thoughts and talk about anything that is troubling you. The sessions will give you space and time to think about yourself and your needs.
Together we will work at your pace and explore any trauma, loss, past hurts and difficulties you may be experiencing and begin to untangle your world. Together we will explore those feelings around past and present hurts and work towards you being able to value yourself as the unique individual you are.

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.
