Stephen Westcott MBACP (Accred), UKCP Reg, UKRCP
I am an experienced BACP Accredited and UKCP registered integrative counsellor/psychotherapist and supervisor working in Rochester, Medway (ME1,ME2,ME3,ME4,ME5,ME6) and Kings Cross (WC1/ WC1X/ WC2). I aim to provide an environment for co-created exploration and growth both for individuals and couples.
I am an integrative practitioner which means I draw from many approaches to therapy depending on the issues and/or client suitability. I enjoy working with clients of various ages and backgrounds. My own background is in music and I therefore like to look at the therapeutic work as something co-created. My belief is that we all have the ability to create the lives we wish to lead. This may of course sometimes be difficult, but I feel that it is in approaching life in a creative way that possibilities can be explored.
I am also a founder of Sail To Clarity , a company that uniquely runs personal and professional development workshops, CPD trainings and charters from a sports cruiser boat on the Medway River in North Kent.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have over 10 years and thousands of client hours in the field, an MA in Integrative Psychotherapy, an Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling and a Diploma in Clinical Supervision. I have also trained in CBT. I am an accredited member of the BACP and have had varied experience with drug and alcohol services, MIND, The Place to Be, and as a team leader and counsellor for Haringey Council. I currently work as a counsellor, psychotherapist and supervisor in full time private practice.
