Adrian Roberts | Couples Counselling
Sometimes, deciding to go to a Psychotherapist or Counsellor can be a difficult step. Some people may feel a sense of failure if they, as an individual or couple, haven’t been able to sort out their problems by themselves. Others may find the idea of therapy daunting. You might be worried about feeling judged or your point of view is not accepted. You might be looking for a safe impartial space to explore your options and seek answers to those issues you might be facing right now. It can feel overwhelming at times when powerful feelings and painful memories get in the way of where you want to be.
Psychotherapy, or seeing a counsellor, is about helping people to understand and move forward from those problems with the help of a compassionate, trained professional. So, I invite you to choose a therapist such as myself with years of experience and a commitment to ongoing development.
Reaching out can be frightening to consider, so do so in a way that suits you e.g Phone, Email, Skype or face to face. We can have an informal, confidential 20-minute chat at no cost to yourself. I look forward to being invited into your story. CALL 07973198325 or visit https://leicestercounselling.org/
Training, qualifications & experience

I was the clinical lead for counselling at the NHS specialist mobility centre where a focus on trauma and PTSD are key to the recovery of the patients.
I use an integrative approach in both short and long term therapy. These include aspects of Psychodynamic, Cognitive and Humanistic approaches. All interventions are known to have considerable success in resolving limiting beliefs, unresolved issues and trauma.
I regularly update my expertise through continued professional development and clinical supervision. I am currently studying for my Masters in Sex Therapy.
"Through accurately pinpointing blocks, releasing my personal potential and self-confidence, Adrian elegantly enabled me to achieve much more than I ever imagined possible." (x trauma patient)
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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
