Yvonne Beechfield-Brown Integrative Counsellor Mbacp
If you have been feeling sad and negative feeling are dominating your thoughts it is likely this is reflecting in your behavour. This in turn have its impact on your decision making and the relationships you have around you.
Of course in the middle of this pendemic all the things we might have relied upon to keep good mental health have been made difficult or in some instances impossible to practise.
Talking in a safe space to a trained professional will help. Together we will explore any issues past or preseent that are preventing you from living life to the fullest in these dificult times. I will encourage and facilitate good self awareness and self compassion that will both heal and bring about lasting change.
In my practise I offer each client the compassion, respect and honesty from our first meeting. My approach to counselling is integrative with a core person centred approach. This means I value each one of my clients as an individual, and recognise that whilst we are all human our experience and view of life is unique to only us.

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.
