Brad Charteris Registered Member MBACP Adv. Dip. Couns.
The Clophill Centre
I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, trained in transactional analysis, CBT, person-centered and psychodynamic counselling. My approach is based on the relational model and I believe that the therapeutic relationship between a counsellor and client is paramount.
My qualification is based on the integration of a number of psychotherapeutic paradigms, and I am therefore able to fit my way of working to an individual client, rather than the reverse.
In addition to the Ampthill Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I practice at The Clophill Centre
I work with a number of presenting issues and, in particular, I specialise in relationship issues, anxiety / panic disorder, depression, worry, stress and childhood issues.
I spent a number of years working in 'people' professions: initially as a librarian / careers information advisor, and latterly as an information professional and a lecturer, before embarking on a career in counselling. I believe this has given me a broad experience of people and their problems.
I am bilingual (English / Danish).
