I am an experienced Counsellor, offering affordable counselling to those who feel burduned by emotional problems in their lives. I help people through a broad range of emotional issues and am available to see you 7am - 9pm Monday - Friday.
During the Coronavirus pandemic I am offering my counselling services by video link or telephone.
Most people experience emotional difficulties at some time in their lives. Often these can be resolved without the need to seek help.
For some these difficulties may persist, with current issues such as anxiety, depression, feelings of sadness or relationship difficulties giving rise to feelings relating to the past, some people may have a vague awareness of what is causing or contributing to their feelings but lack the understanding to enable them to feel better.
It is in situations such as these that Counselling may be able to help. Counselling provides a regular time and space where you can explore your feelings, memories and wishes to help you understand the processes that affect your everyday thoughts and behaviours, offering a real opportunity for relief from your difficulties.
Starting counselling is an important step in your life and as an experienced Counsellor I am here to help you. Please visit my website for more information about how I can help you http://anthonybirbeckcounselling.co.uk/

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I see clients Monday - Friday, 7am - 9pm.
If you think you might be helped by Counselling, a consultation can be arranged in which you can discuss your concerns in detail and gain some understanding of the Counselling process.
The consultation can be useful in helping you think about your difficulties more clearly or in a different way.
The consultation can also help you consider whether short term (12 weeks) or longer term duration might be helpful.
If Counselling does not seem appropriate other ways of proceeding may emerge during our meeting.
I have a private practice attached to my home address.
