Gavin Williams, M.A., M.Phil., Psychodynamic Talking Therapist
Since 1996 I have been helping Couples and Individuals to cope with anxiety, bullying, depression, incestuous desire, addictions, anger, chronic fatigue or FM, obsessive-compulsive, paranoia, worries, emotions, sexual addiction, sexuality, paedophilia, internet pornography.
Committed to a BACP Code of Ethics: I am dedicated to social diversity without discrimination, which is sensitive to issues of body image, psychosomatic, gender, ethnicity, colour, culture, lifestyle, beliefs, sexual orientation, homosexuality, biracial, bi-sexuality, questioning, lesbianism, heterosexuality, transgender, age and disability.
Through Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, (Talking Therapy), individuals and couples are helped to understand themselves better. They learn to identify their 'trigger points', regarding issues of anxiety, and anger.
In complete confidence I encourage you to talk about your personal experiences; present day issues and childhood memories. Talking about and exploring relationships, and the character you find yourself in at work and at home.
Conversation is focused on helping you understand your involvement in family and work relationships and offers you the opportunity to transform your perspective in these relationships.
By talking about your feelings, perhaps of being abandoned, abused, adopted, anxious, bullied, depressed, your divorce or your parent's divorce, loss, rejected, separated, stressed, suicidal, or concerning low self-esteem or lack of confidence, the couple or individual can become transformed from feeling overwhelmed, to becoming more empowered and assertive.
This approach offers an objective, non-judgemental understanding to life experiences, such as Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, questioning sexuality and identity, falling in love, engaged to be married, sexual intercourse, pregnancy, IVF, conception, miscarriage, abortion, separation, divorce.

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
