Philippa Guereca, MEd, MSc Counselling, Registered MBACP
The Healing Rooms
162 Gloucester Road
Within a sensitive and meaningful relationship based on trust and acceptance, I offer counselling to people who are looking to engage more fully with their own lives and who need another adult to help them work through difficulties in order to do this.
I am a qualified counsellor with an MSc in Counselling which incorporates the Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling. I am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and I work in accordance with the BACP code of ethics. My background is in Psychology and Special Education.
Upon completing my degree in Psychology I spent three years living and working as a therapist in a residential therapeutic community for young people with emotional difficulties. This experience underpins my subsequent 25 year commitment to working with adults and young people with differing needs and from diverse backgrounds. During this time I have worked in a community based counselling service, a registered charity and in private practice.
I offer short or longer term counselling, with daytime and some evening appointments.
