My name is Bev Arthur-Barrow and I qualified and have been practising as a Therapeutic Counsellor since my graduation in 2003.

I am a very experienced counsellor offering a confidential personal service to the individuals I work with.  I have undertaken EAP work and within the NHS environment.

My service is undertaken in a holistic and humanistic way making it suitable for all ages, cultures, and genders to access from individuals or families from all communities with complete confidence and success.

Having always pursued study, my work has allowed me to become the successful therapist I am today making an impact on the lives of the individuals. I work with through a range of therapeutic approaches. I constantly endeavour to develop my skills and passion in wanting to assist others to make the changes in both their behaviours and thinking to develop a positive life for themselves looking after their wellbeing.

I have always accessed the methodologies of communicating with the client to assess and respond to their individual needs.

I have found that the most rewarding element of my role is, as you might expect, is the promotion of seeing the changes in the individuals I work with, them developing and undertaking a realistic plan to move forward. The ultimate aim of all that I do being to allow the individual I am working with to live the fullest, meaningful life possible.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

If you are unable to get to my practice, I am able to offer sessions in various locations, please get in touch to learn more about this. I also offer home visits.
