Christine Baird - Counselling in Market Harborough

'I believe that the relationship between counsellor and client is at the heart of successful therapy. Enabling and supporting clients to explore their issues in a way that promotes autonomy over their choices and path in life'

My name is Christine Baird and I am a fully qualified counsellor and supervisor.  I am an accredited member of both the National Counselling Society (NCS) and the Association of Christian Counsellors (ACC).  I adhere to and uphold the ethics and principles they stand for, ensuring confidentiality, professionalism and good practice.  To that end my work is regularly supervised and I hold personal insurance.

My style of counselling is integrative, this means that I use a range of approaches and skills that are personally suited to each individual and their issues.  I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the foundation to positive change within the counselling setting.  Each person has their own special requirements, with sensitivity and respect progress can be achieved using effective tools from various therapeutic models such as Person Centred, CBT, Transactional Analysis and Psychodynamic therapies.


I started counselling after being involved as a volunteer with Homestart, a service that gets alongside families facing difficulties.  In the late 1990's after completing my Certificate in counselling I became involved as a counsellor with the Bower House in Market Harborough and also The Manna House in Northampton.  While being with Manna House I was seconded to working within a GP Practice.  In 2010 I completed my Diploma in Integrative counselling and I am currently developing my own private practice.  In 2012 I gained a Level 6 Certificate in Counselling Supervision.
