Hello, my name is Adam - I’m a qualified integrative counsellor. I offer counselling for adults both in-person and online for a range of issues including anxiety, depression and relationship problems.
Starting, or restarting therapy, can feel like a daunting process.
I can offer you a warm, non-judgmental space where you can freely share what has brought you to therapy. People come to therapy for all kinds of reasons. Perhaps something specific has happened to you that you’d like to work through together. Or perhaps you’re experiencing a more general feeling of unease or dissatisfaction with life, unsure how to proceed.
At the heart of my practice is a focus on the relationship between myself and my client - I believe that we heal and grow through relationships. That means that in our sessions we work collaboratively, together.
It's my aim to help you explore how you currently think and relate to the world, what's holding you back in life, and what might help you live the life you'd like to.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). I hold a Diploma in Counselling from The Minster Centre, a leading integrative counselling and psychotherapy training institute. I am currently working towards an Advanced Diploma and MA in Psychotherapy due in 2022.
Through my work at the NHS, I have experience of offering counselling for a diverse range of issues including:
- Family issues
- Relationship problems
- Low self-esteem
- Bereavement and loss
- Identity issues
I enjoy working with people from a range of backgrounds.
Prior to retraining as a counsellor, I worked for a number of media companies in events and publishing, so understand the stresses and pressures of creative and commercial industries.
Alongside my counselling work, I research and write about mental health for Mind.
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
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
