Linda Rees, BSc (Hons) Psychology, PGDip Couns Psych, MBACP (Accred)
I’m now offering counselling via telephone or FaceTime. I am a BACP Accredited Psychotherapist/Counsellor working within my own practice and a GP surgery. I see clients with difficulties such as depression, stress, anxiety, low self-esteem, relationships, work related issues.
We all experience difficult moments in our lives, sometimes they can be so painful we find it hard to cope. If you are troubled or finding life difficult I can offer a safe space where I will listen and help you to explore your difficulties, in confidence and in a non-judgemental way. In this space we can work together to make sense of your thoughts and feelings which can help you to make choices about what to do to bring about changes and improve your quality of life.
I have 17 years' experience offering professional help to people from diverse backgrounds. I work on a one-to-one basis with clients with a variety of difficulties. In my private practice I work from a quiet, comfortable room in my home, in a rural part of Maidenhead, close to the town centre. My approach to counselling is integrative. This includes cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), person-centred and psychodynamic therapies, and I offer both short and long-term counselling depending on what myself and my client decide is most helpful.
I work according to the BACP Code of Ethics.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a BSc (Hons) Degree in Psychology and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Counselling Psychology from Roehampton University.
I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and am registered with the United Kingdom Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (UKRCP).
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.
