Andrew Harvey – Addictions Counsellor
I am an experienced addictions counsellor available to see you online or in person.
I offer confidential access to professional private counselling and therapy. I offer a free no obligation initial telephone consultation to answer any questions you may have.
My experience includes providing addiction counselling at Priory and other rehab hospitals. I currently work exclusively in my own private practice.
If you are struggling with out-of-control behaviours or substance use I can offer you assistance in changing this to overcome these struggles.
It is often important to address any other issues that may be contributing to your difficulties such as depression, anxiety, stress, and trauma. By addressing any issues that might be contributing to and / or maintaining your addiction long term recovery is attainable. It is possible to break the cycle.
By offering you a safe, confidential , non-judgmental space to make sense of what is happening or has happened you can gain understanding and make the changes needed to make things better.

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.
