Yvonne Beechfield-Brown Integrative Counsellor Mbacp
It is inevitable that we will all experience periods in our lives that are both emotionally and physically hard. Sometimes we might become stuck in this difficult place. Our relationships may start to suffer as we feel more and more that 'no one understands'. Eventually our mental health will suffer as stress, anxiety and depression set in.
I truly believe, if we are to live the best life honouring who we are as individuals, to overcome what sometimes might seem impossible, then we need a safe space to explore painful and frustrating blocks.
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.
Together we will explore any issues past or present that are preventing you from living life to the fullest. I will encourage and facilitate good self awareness and self compassion to promote healing and lasting change.

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.
