Richard Wilson MA, MSc, MBACP (Accredited), Bupa Registered.
Here at Transitions Counselling I offer short and long term Counselling and Psychotherapy at £55-60 a session.
I am a registered, accredited member of the BACP - this means that my work has been approved by the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy, (one of the national bodies of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and am bound by it's ethical principles. I'm also a Bupa recognised provider of Psychotherapy.
In a session you are free to talk about whatever it is that is troubling you. I will be working to provide a safe space to help you explore and develop within a genuine empathic relationship. I offer my honest perspective in a trusting, caring and confidential environment.
I work by helping clients make links between their current difficulties, and their past experiences. By understanding the past more clearly, I feel people can free themselves from negative conditioning and detrimental behaviours.
Perhaps you want to explore more specific questions, "who am I", "what do I want out of life" or "why do I always end up in the same situation". You may want help coming to terms with a crisis in your life, or a relationship difficulty that you are having, or maybe to explore uncomfortable feelings.

Registered / Accredited
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.

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).
