About me

About Me
My name is Antonio. I am an experienced counsellor with expertise in anxiety addictions and relationships problems.
My experience expands for over 15 years in supporting people. I have also worked in the NHS in Substance misuse and alcohol dependancy. My expertise is in anxiety and addictive behaviours. I have worked with many different presenting issues and a variety of challenges that we as human are sometimes face with.
My objective is the one of supporting you in becoming more autonomous and self-reliant. I will support you in exploring the concern you will bring to the session. This will be done in a safe and confidential space. I work under the BACP code of ethics and you will receive nothing but the best of standards.

Working Together
In my initial consultation we will explore to gather your needs and concerns. You will have an opportunity to ask any question you may have. In this initial consultation we will have an opportunity to get to know each other. At the end of the consultation, we will decide if it is appropriate to work together. If we decide to work together my suggestion is to work together for 6 sessions with a session to review the work undertaken and to explore if necessary to continue. This is all explored in the safety of a confidential space.

My Qualities and Approach
Key words: emphatic – understanding – supportive – and most of all ethical and confidential. In my practice and in the years, I have worked with people I have learned a great deal strategy and can offer you many different tips for to experiment with and see if they help in the changes you want to make. I take my work seriously however in the time we work together there will be opportunity to smile.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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)

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.
