Orly Koppel MBACP Snr Accred. BA MA Oxon
I am working online full time during the coronavirus period - I'm on Skype, Facetime, WhatsApp and Zoom.
I offer a warm and relaxed approach to counselling and am happy to chat on the phone to potential clients - that way, you can get a sense of what it's like to work with me.
A bit of background: I originally studied languages and then worked in International Marketing & Advertising. Since retraining as a counsellor in 1998, I have gathered over 20 years experience working with a large range of issues and clients.
I have worked in many different settings including seven years counselling in several GP practices. I work integratively; using a variety of therapeutic models and techniques including CBT where helpful, always tailored to the needs and wishes of each individual client.
My consulting room is conveniently located in Buchanan Street, in the city centre and has full disabled access.
I have a particular interest in working with autistic clients and am on the National Austistic Society's resource list. I am happy to work with NT:Autistic couples, as well as family members. I am also very interested in working with clients who are Neurodiverse (ADHD, ADD, Tourette’s)
I also have a great deal of expertise in working with trauma, particularly as a result of war, persecution and/or displacement.
I am LGBTQIA+ and GSRD aware
Please refer to my website for detailed information. Feel free to phone or email me if you have any questions.
I also offer counselling supervision and professional supervision for case workers/social workers and related professions.
As a member of BACP, I am bound by its Code of Ethics and Practice and subject to its complaints procedure.

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.
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).
