Our Counsellors


All counsellors working from the Counselling Rooms are fully qualified to practice, fully insured, members of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) or their equivalent professional organisation such as the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy), ITA (Institute of Transactional Analysis) or BABCP (British Association for Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapies).  All have ongoing supervision in line with professional requirements. Many of us also have achieved accreditation and others are currently working towards this. We are all committed to working ethically and providing a service that is accessible, effective and supportive. We all offer some sessions at reduced rates for people with low incomes.

Please feel free to contact any of the counsellors directly or to find out more information, follow the link to their individual websites. If you are unsure about the different therapeutic approaches we have a brief guide that provides some more information about what they entail, which can be found in the Downloads folder on the home page. Alternatively, if you are not sure who may be the most suitable counsellor for your needs, please complete the enquiry form on the next page and we will get back to you.
