About me

Therapy is about moving on from the challenges that can block our lives and seeking change through exploring the hope, potential and opportunity within us.

The first change that occurs is in someone recognising that they need support and then taking the positive step of making contact. The support I offer is in assisting them to explore, challenge and change the things that are standing in their way.

Therapy is also about developing positive mental health skills and strategies, in order to maintain long term health and happiness.​

My hope is to enable others to move beyond their challenges, reach their goals and enjoy more fulfilling lives.

I offer a £20 reduced fee introductory session to all one-to-one clients 

For more information call 07708238215, email andrea@aylwardcp.com or visit https://www.aylwardcp.com to book your introductory session online.

Walking Therapy
This service offers the opportunity to meet with your therapist face-to-face, outdoors, whilst walking on safe, risk assessed routes, maintaining social distancing regulations. This is beneficial to many clients, in many ways and is a long term aid to positive mental health.

Member organisations

BACP

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

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).

Wheelchair user access

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.
