Hello, my name is Adam. I am a qualified integrative counsellor. I offer counselling for adults for a range of issues including anxiety, depression, relationships and worries about work.
Starting, or restarting therapy, can feel like a daunting process.
I can offer you a warm, non-judgmental space where you can 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. 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 to live the life you would 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 completing an Advanced Diploma and MA in Psychotherapy.
I was drawn to training as an integrative counsellor as it recognises that we are all made up of various experiences and histories - and it offers different approaches for life’s difficulties. I am sensitive to how our ethnicity, gender, sexuality and class backgrounds shape our stories.
I have delivered therapy for the NHS and an adult service working with the LGBTQ+ community. Through this work, I have experience of offering counselling for a diverse range of issues including:
- Depression and feeling sad
- Family issues
- Concerns about work
- Relationship and dating, including dating apps
- Low self-esteem and low self-confidence
- Sexuality, including coming out
- Worries about sex
- Identity issues
- Feeling lonely and isolated
- Bereavement and loss
Prior to retraining as a counsellor, I worked for a number of media companies in events, journalism and publishing, giving me an understanding of the stresses and pressures of creative and commercial industries.
Alongside my training, for five years, I worked for Mind, researching and writing about mental health, ensuring that the information was shaped together with people with lived experience.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
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.
