Charlotte Neal

If you are finding it difficult to cope with life at the moment, I would like to help. Counselling does not have to be something you are ashamed of, but rather that you are proud of, because you want to lead a happier life. The key to healing is talking about it, I ensure all my clients find me client-centred, approachable and plain speaking; a realistic person who deeply values my client’s well-being.

I began my journey to become a counsellor whilst studying psychology with the Open University back in 2004. I qualified as a counsellor in 2012 and five years on I still passionately believe in the power of psychological change. I have accrued more than one thousand one-to-one client hours and applied for BACP Accreditation. My clients find me authentic, realistic, non-judgemental, empathic and approachable.

Prior to qualification I have previously worked in supportive roles in the community, in mental health units and the prison service. I also provide private mentoring to individuals and contractual counselling work for two charities and a community interest company which I enjoy immensely.

I undertake monthly supervision plus regular, continual and professional development and training. I regularly liaise with other agencies and companies to further my knowledge of other mental health services and keep confidential records in my role as a counsellor in line with data protection.

The profession of counselling regulated on a voluntary basis, feel assured I am a fully trained, regulated counsellor and a member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). I fully adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework for Counselling Professionals   I am a member of the BACP Register that is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care.



    Kind Words from Clients

    “Charlotte you have brought the light back into my life, thank you for being there for me”

    “Thank you everything you have done for me; you helped me acknowledge that I was a victim of a crime and I have nothing to feel shame or guilt about. With your help, I have let go, rebuilt and moved on”

    “I have received counselling from Charlotte and found her to be incredibly professional and knowledgeable. I felt completely comfortable and safe to open up to her because she listened to me in such a caring, non-judgemental way. I had complete trust in her abilities and knew that she would guide me safely and compassionately throughout the sessions without being shocked.”

    “Thank you for all your help and support over these past weeks; I would not have been able to do it without you”

    “Your work is an example of excellent professional conduct; something we value very highly. We really appreciate your continued support”

    “Charlotte – you get me! There are not many people I can say that about”

    “Charlotte has a rare ability to be warm, caring and yet professional. This made me feel safe and I had complete trust in her ability to help and guide me through the counselling sessions. I have had counselling with other professionals in the past but have found that Charlotte was successful because she actually listened to me as an individual. The fact that she cares deeply about her work is clear and she genuinely wants to help people develop personally and lead healthy and empowered lives.”

    “Just wanted to say special thanks to Charlotte for all your support, I won’t forget to tell myself I am good enough”

    “Thank you for the counselling that I had with you. It has helped me in so many ways. I know that you haven’t asked me for a testimonial but I wanted to share with everyone how beneficial it has been and how professional you are”
