My name is Beren Aldridge and I have led the Porchlight Practice since 2005.  I am a UKCP registered Psychotherapist and a Certified Transactional Analyst. I offer counselling and psychotherapy in a friendly, experienced and professional environment and I support individuals, couples and families, with short-term problem solving and longer term personal and relationship change.

My practice is based in comfortable and secluded offices in Highgate, Kendal, adjacent to the Brewery Arts Centre and I can schedule appointment times during office hours throughout the week. I intially work with clients on a weekly basis; once we have established our working relationship I am happy to consider working fortnightly where appripriate.

I have many years’ experience working as a therapist with a broad range of issues and problems, with people from all walks of life and I have worked with people with significant mental health issues throughout my career.  I am very happy to discuss your issues or concerns, or my work, by telephone before scheduling an appointment.
