Barrie Hopwood MBACP Senior Accredited
COUNSELLING PROVISION DURING COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS
Please note that, as well as having returned to face to face face sessions, I offer new clients Zoom or Telephone Counselling. Please call me if you would like to discuss how ‘remote counselling’ might work for you.
I am a BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist working in this field since qualifying in 1987. I am also a counselling supervisor, trainer and mediator offering individual, couple and parent and child counselling, supervision and mediation services at my practices in Beaconsfield and High Wycombe (Bucks) and Northwood (Middlesex). In addition to my private practice the settings in which I have worked include schools, Further and Higher Education, Feltham Young Offender Institution, Hounslow Youth Counselling Service, ICAS, GP surgeries and Critical Incident De-Briefing for several major companies.
I have 20 years experience as a supervisor and about half my work is individual and group supervision of counsellors and psychotherapists. I facilitate a monthly series of workshops for counsellors and those in the helping professions at Jordans Quaker Conference Centre in Buckinghamshire.
I trained as a Person-Centred Counsellor and although I remain firmly anchored in the way of being and philosophy of the Person-Centred Approach I have broadened and deepened my understanding and beliefs about the human condition through training, reading and personal development which would lead me to describe myself as an Integrative Humanistic Practitioner. I integrate Jungian Developmental Psychology, Focusing, Inner Child, TA, EMDR and Dream and Soul Work in my practice (please see web site for further details) and have a particular interest in working with men around issues of masculinity, 'The Little Boy Within', 'Mid-Life Crisis' and Late Maturity.

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.
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).

If you wish to cancel an appointment please give a full 48 hours notice or you will be asked to pay the cost of the missed session. If you are 'prevented' from attending (e.g.sudden illness or genuine emergency) within the 48 hour period I will waive 50% of the session fee. Please pay by cash or cheque (made payable to 'Barrie Hopwood') at the end of each session. Subsequent to the first session payments can be made by BACS.
An hour's session is up to 60 minutes rather than the 50 minute 'therapeutic hour'.
I will review the fee annually but will not increase the initial fee agreed within one calendar year of our first appointment.
