About us

Zest For Life Counselling and Training Services was originally set up 13 years ago to provide high-quality counselling and training services in Banbridge in the heart of County Down, Northern Ireland.  

At Zest For Life Therapy Centre, we specialise in counselling, psychotherapy and play therapy for individuals, couples, children, adolescents, families and groups. The Centre is run by two Directors, Lena Bambrick and Hazel Marsden, both  highly qualified Therapists and Clinical Supervisors who have 20 years experience working in their field. 

Training, qualifications & experience

We have a highly qualified and experienced team of therapists and counsellors, who specialise in a range of therapeutic issues. All our staff adheres to the strict code of ethics and are committed to working professionally and confidentially with you. They are equipped to deal with a number of issues that may be troubling you and are available to answer any questions you may have.

Member organisations *

Registered / Accredited

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)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

We have verified that at least one professional at this organisation is registered with the relevant professional body.
