Robert Gussman MBACP

About me

I have over 25 years of pastoral experience, working face to face with people in a wide variety of difficulties. I offer an accepting and confidential space where you can explore your feelings and what is going on in your life. My role is not to offer advice, but to help you understand yourself better, address your needs, identify the choices open to you, and take responsibility for your own life.

What brings people to counselling? Having difficulty in relationships; feeling dissatisfaction with life; anxiety, stress or confusion; struggling with loss or bereavement; or maybe just feeling overwhelmed.

As well as dealing with what is going on for you now, I encourage clients to explore their past, which shapes the way we think, feel and behave today.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, and qualified with a BACP accredited degree in Counselling. I receive regular clinical supervision for the work I do, in accordance with the requirements of the profession, and I abide by the BACP ethical code of practice.

Member organisations


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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access Unspecified


As well as daytime appointments, I can be flexible in offering some evening sessions.
