Zoe Rutt MBACP, BA (Hons)
Taking the first step to seek professional support can feel daunting but can make a real difference to what is happening right now for you. It is very important that you find the right person for you, someone you feel able to confide in, trust and who really listens to you without any judgement. I therefore, offer a reduced fee for the initial consultation which gives us a chance to meet in person and discuss what you’d like from therapy, before making any type of commitment.
I am a qualified Integrative Relational Counsellor/Psychotherapist which means our sessions can be tailored to meet your needs. This means I am able to use different theoretical approaches to explore and gain insight into your patterns, behaviours and emotional difficulties. More importantly I am there to support you.
I work with young people aged 16+ and adults. I offer both short-term and long-term therapy.
Each session is for 50 minutes and during our time together, we will continually review our work to ensure that your goals and expectations are being met.
I am a Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their Ethical Framework.
I am fully insured and I attend Regular Clinical Supervision.
I am also an approved therapist for Vitality Health.

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.
