Introduction and summary of services.

My name is Simon Howes, and I am an experienced and caring counsellor and psychotherapist with a private practice in Northampton. Welcome to my website.

I provide a discreet and confidential service and hold sessions in my therapy room in a quiet residential area near Abington Park, ten minutes drive from Northampton town centre. There is ample free parking on the road outside.

In terms of my qualifications, I am an Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and a Registered Counsellor and Psychotherapist on the BACP Register which is administered by an independent body and accountable to Parliament. My training qualification is recognised by both the BACP and also the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).

Choosing the right therapist is an important process, and I understand that it can take courage to begin seeking help and support. Because of this, I offer an initial fifty minute consultation with no obligation or commitment to attend any further sessions, to give you the chance to meet me and see if you feel comfortable with me and the way that I work. 

I hope you find some useful information on this site, both about counselling and psychotherapy in general and also about my own practice and qualifications, but should you have any further questions, or should you wish to book a consultation, please do get in touch by calling or texting me on 07867 980 253 or by emailing me at
