About me

I am an accredited registered member of BACP and work integratively, drawing on person centred and attachment approaches to psychotherapy.

I believe each individual is unique and this informs my work with clients. I pay particular attention to the therapeutic relationship and believe that this is key to individual growth.

How we are responded to, particularly in our early years by our main caregivers, shapes our perception of ourselves, others and our place in the world. With this in mind, I will help you explore your thoughts, feelings, behaviours and physical sensations and the links between them in a non judgemental, safe and compassionate way.

Through gaining a better understanding of these aspects of ourselves, we deepen our self knowledge and create the conditions for change to take place.

If you are interested in setting up a meeting, please contact me via my mobile: 07502332676 or email: andybutterton@mail.com. The first meeting will be an opportunity for me to find out more about you and what has made you seek help at this time. Its also a chance for you to decide if counselling is something that could be of benefit to you. If you are happy to continue we can arrange a second meeting and from then on meet once a week.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
