Beth O'Sullivan MA Counselling/psychotherapy, MBACP
I am an experienced psychotherapist with 15 years of experience, awarded a masters degree in Counselling/psychotherapy by Goldsmiths University. I am accredited with the BACP.
Due to the current pandemic restrictions, I am also offering counselling/psychotherapy services online - fee £45.
I am trained to work with a range of emotional difficulties.
Whether due to troubling experiences from the past, or difficult issues in the present, we may experience stress, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, or just a general sense of unfulfillment. These issues can affect all aspects of our lives. The goal of counselling/psychotherapy, therefore, is to lead a healthier more fulfilling life by becoming more aware of what holds us back and avoiding the things that throw us off balance.
You will be supported in changing unhelpful dynamics thereby gaining confidence in your ability to manage your life for the better.

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.

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).
