Antonella Mercurio, Counsellor & Psychotherapist MA Integ Psych, Adv Dip, MBACP
I am an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, I have an advanced diploma and an MA in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
Most of us at some stage of our lives will encounter difficult situations and painful feelings. Sometimes we may not be able to make sense of it all and feel unclear on how to move forward. Those situations may be for us overwhelming. Possibly the support we have around us might not feel enough, and being offered a different prospective or point of view can be beneficial for our well being and desire to move forward in life.
Professional counselling/therapy may be a way forward for you. This may offer a much needed fresh prospective, helping you to explore underlying issues that interfere with what you think, feel and do.
I offer a calm non judgemental space, I don't expect you to talk about anything you don't want to, at first, we can look into and agree on what the focus of our work will be. In therapy one's inner experience can be witness with clarity, honesty and compassion.
I predominantly work long term, however I do offer shorter term counselling (between 6 to 12 weeks) should you have a specific issue you would like to explore and work on.

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.
