Andrew Harvey professional Counsellor & Therapist
Seeing clients in person sessions and / or online.
Effective, Confidential and Flexible counselling in person, on the telephone or Online.
My experience includes working as a therapist for The Priory both in general mental health and addictions. In addition to this valuable experience, I have extensive training and I am fully qualified to work in private practice.
I offer a confidential, non-judgemental and flexible approach to counselling. It is an opportunity for you to share, discover and, if you want, change.
My approach is based on working collaboratively with clients to help find their best way forward, my training includes a number of different therapeutic approaches, this allows me to tailor the sessions to best fit with clients and their current challenges.
I work with individuals who have specific goals and change in mind and individuals who have a sense of “something” being wrong, but not knowing for certain what that “something” is. I work both short and long-term and offer several different ways of working, I have found this responds well to the uniqueness that we all present.
If you would like to know more or are considering moving forward with counselling a good way forward is an informal, no obligation chat on the phone, you can then ask any questions you may have, and we can see if what I can offer is of use.
At this time i am only able to offer Online Counselling and Therapy. I offer both daytime and evening appointments.

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.

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).
