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.

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.

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.
