John A McCann MA Dip Counselling MBACP(Accred)
Shepherds Bush Green
I work as a MBACP accredited counsellor with a wide range of clients in both London and Brighton where I offer individual and couple counselling in a confidential private setting.
The starting point of the work is to offer clients a safe and boundaried experience in which to explore what has brought them to counselling.
My approach is based on the belief that individuals deserve respect and understanding for their unique experiences and that the talking therapies can provide help, understanding, support and solutions for clients who want to make changes in their lives or live more comfortably with themselves. My theoretical training is in Transactional Analysis which I use as one of a range of integrative approaches to provide what best suits each client's needs. My approach is similar when working with couples where my aim is to work with the relationship and the difficulties experienced by each partner.
Training, qualifications & experience
The qualifications I have from my academic training in education are a B Soc Sc (Jt Hons). PGCE and MA.
I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy MBACP (Accred) and a UKRC Registered Independent Counsellor. I have a Certificate in Counselling Skills (WPF) and a Diploma in Counselling using Transactional Analysis from the Metanoia Institute London. I have recently completed the teaching part of an Advanced Diploma in Couples Therapy and continue to develop my professional knowledge by attending a range of courses relating to therapy issues.
I have worked for an agency in Brighton for seven years and continue to work for a large counselling agency in West London.
