About me

Hello, I'm Andreas, an integrative psychotherapist specializing in helping people with anxiety, depression and low self-esteem. I am trained in different models of therapy and tailor them to the individual needs of each person. I am also trained to help with issues of stress, panic attacks, shame, anger, bereavement, trauma, abuse, family and relationship issues. I've previously worked as a therapist in the NHS and I'm experienced with online and telephone therapy.

I provide a safe, supportive and confidential space where you can feel free to talk about your concerns without fear of judgement. Together, we can explore and process difficult thoughts and feelings to help you recognize unhelpful habits, resolve painful feelings and build better ways of coping and communicating.

Beginning therapy is a big step towards improving your mental health and leading a more fulfilling life. I offer both short and long-term therapy, which will depend on your individual needs and goals. Please get in touch with any questions you might have about therapy or to arrange a free phone consultation.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Masters Degree in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy and I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and therefore abide by their Ethical Framework and Professional Conduct Procedures.

As an integrative psychotherapist, I draw upon different types of therapies, including Psychodynamic, Humanistic and Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) approaches. I like to work with my clients in a collaborative and respectful way and I tailor therapy sessions to meet the unique needs of each person.

To ensure I meet continuing professional BACP requirements, I receive monthly clinical supervision, I maintain professional indemnity insurance and I have a valid enhanced DBS check. Additionally, I attend regular training and professional development courses to broaden my therapeutic skills.

Before becoming a therapist, I worked in management and teaching. These experiences have allowed me to understand how hard it can be to struggle with personal issues while working in demanding and competitive environments.

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.
