About me

Who am I?

I am Rayner Ward, a Person Centred Counsellor and Supervisor. Person centred counselling is based on the belief that within each of us we hold the potential to live our lives to our maximum capacity. I believe it is healthy to admit that sometimes we all need a little help.

So, what's counselling?

As a counsellor I am there to listen to you exploring your concerns. I aim to provide an accessible non-judgmental, safe and confidential space for you to talk openly.

Many people experience moments of muddle in life. Sometimes life just doesn't seem to make any sense. Counselling is about enabling you to express your thoughts and feelings in a safe place with someone who does not know you and is otherwise unconnected with your life.

As a counsellor I will listen, not judge or criticize you. I will be with you as you explore what you would like to be different. No worry is too small - if it's important enough to worry you it's important enough to seek counselling. Our work together can be long or short term.

How does it work?

I offer an initial meeting for you to talk openly about your concerns and how you would like things to be different. If we both feel comfortable we will talk about practicalities, agree a regular time and day to meet, along with cost. Usually meetings, (sessions), are weekly lasting 50 minutes. I will take some basic details, like name, address and a phone number. Some brief records are kept of each meeting.

Training, qualifications & experience

After completing two AQA certificates one in Counselling Theory the other in Counselling Skills I continued my passion by training at the Metanoia Institute in Ealing, West London. Whilst completing my diploma I built up experience working with clients in a variety of settings.  I have 10+ years experience working with clients in their teens to those in retirement including many Carers.  I am especially interested in loss - health, heart, home, business, work, family, person or place. I have a Certificate in Person Centred Supervision from Metanoia.

I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice including regular meetings with a supervisor to monitor my practice, ensuring consistent standards and quality of work as well as attending continued professional development trainings. I co-ordinate a BACP Private Practice Regional Network Group. I also hold memberships with the British Association for the Person Centred Approach, (BAPCA) and the Association for Independent Practitioners (AIP).
