Bill Key (Dip.Couns, MBACP) Therapeutic Counsellor.
If you are struggling with stress, anxiety, low self esteem, relationship problems or if you feel you are unable to escape from a pattern of harmful or limiting behaviour, counselling can help. I offer a safe, non-judgemental space where we can work together to enable you to move towards greater self-acceptance and positive change.
I am trained in various techniques that I use to help with a range of difficulties including anger, obsession, feeling ‘different’, low self-esteem as well as historic or current family problems. I also have specialised knowledge and experience in working with drug or alcohol problems and other addictions or compulsive behaviours.
Please email or call to arrange a FREE consultation. This is a chance for us to meet and explore what you are hoping to get from counselling and how I can help. There is no obligation to continue with the therapy and I may suggest alternative sources of help and support. If you wish to continue working together we will arrange regular weekly sessions of 50 minutes.
I welcome you to call or text me on 07720 300992 or click here to send me an email.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a CPCAB level 4 Diploma in integrative therapeutic counselling from the Counselling and Psychotherapy Training Academy.
I have been involved in personal development and particularly in drug and alcohol recovery, for over 30 years.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
