Anthony Prendergast, MBACP, UKCP, MSc
If you are looking for a counsellor to help with Couples Counselling, Anger Management, Depression, Bereavement, Anxiety, Sex & Sexuality or Addictions, I can help you look at the issues involved and will work with you on finding solutions to your current problems. I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and a Certified Transactional Analyst (CTA).
Additional training in other therapies (listed below) allows me to tailor counselling or therapy to your particular needs.
I am happy to discuss your needs and how the types of therapy I offer can help you in a 15 minute free telephone consultation.
I also offer counselling and psychotherapy via Skype for those who are geographically further away or find the convenience of it useful.

Registered / Accredited

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
Sessions are available Mon-Fri 10am - 5pm
Some evening sessions are also available.
All sessions are 45 minutes in length plus 15 minutes is allocated outside of the session to thinking about the session and writing notes about anything that may be useful for the next session. Unlike most therapists I share my session notes with the client if I feel it would be therapeutic to do so. This is a style of working very transparently that I call Open Therapy.
£70 for individuals
£110 for couples
