Andrew Seed (MA, AdDip, MBACP)
A supportive space to explore your problems and work towards a greater feeling of freedom and contentment.
My approach is tailored to each person's needs. Each person's difficulties may have been triggered by multiple factors including the present situation, past traumas, personal, social or existential issues. Talking about problems with a therapist can reveal different perspectives and allow new meanings to emerge. I also practise meditation which can be used in session to complement the psychotherapeutic process.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a professionally trained counsellor (MA, AdDip), having completed my training at The Minster Centre and am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I have experience working as a counsellor and psychotherapist at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama and Hackney Centre for Better Health.
I have knowledge of a wide range of mental health difficulties gained from working in posts with the NHS, Mind and Maytree Suicide Respite Centre. I am currently completing doctorate research at The University of Edinburgh overcoming oppression and finding freedom.
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).
