About Bethany Thornton Counselling
I am a qualified, experienced and BACP registered and accredited counsellor working in Stafford. I offer counselling for individuals or couples.
Depressed? Anxious? Stressed? Disliking yourself? Struggling to overcome the impact of past events? Grieving? Relationship problems? All these things and more can follow you like a dark cloud, stopping you from enjoying life and making the most of each day. You may have thought it will go away eventually, but it’s just not getting any better… if you’re wanting to improve your mental health but can’t seem to do it on your own then it may be time to get in touch with me.
If you are looking to take that first step in speaking to a counsellor then be assured that you will receive a friendly and welcoming approach from me, so please get in contact and we can discuss your requirements in confidence. I also offer a discounted rate for the first session so that you can make an informed decision about whether you would like to work with me. I work from a comfortable counselling room in my home, but can also offer counselling over the telephone or via Skype.
My qualifications include a Professional Diploma (DipHE) in Therapeutic Counselling, a British Psychological Society Approved Certificate in Third Wave Cognitive Behavioural Therapy which incorporates therapies such as: Compassion-Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness and a COSRT Approved Certificate in Working with Couples and Other Relationships. I am committed to furthering my qualifications and training through continuing professional development and have recently undergone additional training workshops in Psychological First Aid, Emotional Resilience, Attachment, Projection, Concepts of Bereavement and Loss and Information Governance (managing client information to NHS guidelines for confidentiality).
I am a Registered and Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (Accreditation is a higher quality standard for more experienced members of the BACP) and I adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice.
I have DBS clearance and a Level 1 Certificate in Safeguarding Training for working with adults at risk.
