Barbara Perini- Counsellor and Psychotherapist- MBACP (Accred)
In our daily lives, each of us experiences difficult moments and struggles with relationships and events happening. Having someone in a professional setting, who can listen and help you find out a way around these difficulties is essential, especially in a world where everybody is busy and our emotional life gets lost at times.
I offer a flexible approach, using psychodynamic therapy and focusing on each individual with their needs and emotions. I am trained in long term counselling, and short term (16 sessions) Dynamic Interpersonal Training, which is a semi-structured approach developed for mood disorders. An initial consultation will help us decide which therapy is best for you.
I have wide experience working with Mental Health and in different settings within the community. In addition, I will be able to offer therapy in Italian if required.
Please do not hesitate to contact me for any further information. I will be happy to have a 15 minutes phone conversation (free of charge) to discuss the best course of therapy for you.

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.
