Anthony Richard Fletcher Clarke
If you are investing in therapy then you are looking for a solution to something, a problem, an unwanted or unexpected change in your life, difficult feelings, relationship issues, destructive habits, unhelpful behaviours.
Why see a therapist?
I am trained to listen well, to observe, to collect information and to understand. That process requires me to ask questions, to form an honest therapeutic relationship with you and to find and agree on solutions. Most therapists have been in therapy so we know what it feels like. I know that the relationship with me has to feel right for you for it to work most effectively.
The counselling process can be short term, a few sessions, or longer-term depending on your issues. It can be more about the present, say for instance dealing with a difficult work situation, or may need to go back in time to pick up on behaviours or habits that continue to cause you problems now.
I have worked with a lot of patient issues, but if I feel I am not the best person for you or that you would benefit from seeing an organisation or attending a group then I will discuss this with you and point you in the right direction.
If you are not sure what to expect or what you need please look at my website: www.fletcherclarke.co.uk as this gives a good idea of how I work and my experience.
Then have a talk with me on phone 07956911186. If I do not answer please leave your telephone number or email and good times to contact you and I will respond.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an MBACP senior registered counsellor and psychotherapist in private practice with over 20 years of experience. I am an integrative therapist so I use different approaches and integrate them into working out a treatment plan which gives us some direction but is of course flexible. I started my career with a humanistic qualification and over the years with more training, I have developed a more technique-based approach, sometimes using all or some NLP, EFT EMDR and CBT.
I work with individuals and couples.
Over the years I have also worked within organisations including The Terrence Higgins Trust where my counselling service provided face to face, online and African emotional support. I have also provided clinical supervision for therapists working at PACE, CARA, East London Bereavement, Mind in Tower Hamlets and Greenwich Youth reach. I currently continue to provide clinical supervision.

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.
