About me

Hi, my name is Andy. I am a qualified counsellor, offering 1 to 1 sessions from my therapy room in Oxenhope, near Keighley, as well as online (Zoom) and telephone sessions.

I work using mainly a person centred approach, that enables you to experience the therapeutic process in your own way, and at your own pace.

I have training in mindfulness and DBT Skills (Dialectical Behaviour Therapy) which I may utilise during your sessions.

By creating a safe, warm, and non-judgemental environment, I aim to provide you with somewhere where you can explore any issues that you want to share. By talking about life events, your emotions, thoughts and feelings, you can start to make sense of the issues that you bring to counselling.

Whether you are experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship issues, struggles at work, or any other issues, accessing counselling can support you on your personal journey.

I understand that choosing a counsellor can be a difficult task, and you may have questions that you want to ask. If this is the case, please feel free to contact me with any queries that you have, or to discuss your options.

Member organisations

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.
