Andrea English - Counsellor & Psychotherapist - MUKCP, MBACP
I work with a range of needs from simply having a desire to discover more about yourself and how you are in the world, to feelings of anxiety, depression, dealing with loss and change, relationship worries, unfulfilled potential and stuckness (this list is not exhaustive).
As an integrative practitioner, I call upon a range of therapies to help support my work with you, including Humanistic, Attachment-based and Psychodynamic psychotherapies. I offer evidence-based relational practice and as research evidence suggests, the relationship between you and your therapist is key, so it’s important to take the time to choose someone who feels right for you.
I offer one to one sessions in person. Sessions via skype or telephone are also possible, if appropriate. Sessions are primarily weekly and can be short, medium or long term depending on your needs.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a UKCP registered Psychotherapist and BACP registered Counsellor with over a decade of experience working with young and older adults who have concerns about their mental health and more general every day worries and concerns, where a place to sit and talk for a while, with someone who will not judge and is not connected to their everyday lives, is needed.
- Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Psychotherapy (Metanoia Institute)
- Diploma in Integrative Psychodynamic Counselling (Metanoia Institute)

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.
