About me

Who are you? ... And where are you going?

In the rush and bustle of everyday life, we sometimes fail to ask the most fundamental questions of ourselves. Questions like 'who am I?', 'where am I going in life?', and 'am I the person I really want to be?'

Sometimes we reach our own realisation that the nagging background doubt we once had about some of these things, has now become a yawning gap.

At other times, it's traumatic events and life's unseen and unprepared for difficulties - illness, loss, relationship breakdown - that suddenly thrust us into this new and uncomfortable position.

However each of us got there, we know that the strain of 'carrying on regardless' places an increasingly heavy burden upon us. It is then we might want to stand back, take stock, and re-orientate.

Can psychotherapy help you get there?

With the guidance of an experienced practitioner, psychotherapy encourages you to stand back and take a long hard look at yourself and your situation.

It's a kind of psychological stock-taking. You decide that which continues to be useful, and that which is long past its sell by date and needs discarding.

You head in directions that feel right for you!

Successful therapy requires a lot of experience and specific training. Bill Rosseter, a qualified psychoanalytic psychotherapist, has specialised in helping individuals in this way for over twenty five years.

Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy

Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy is a mode of treatment which aims to help you understand those unconscious processes which affect your conscious thinking and behaviour. In this way, psychotherapy can gradually bring about a degree of self understanding, particularly how past experiences can affect your current behaviour. These insights can enable you to adopt more appropriate ways of being, and of coping with difficulties. They allow you to become more the person you want to be, rather than the person you are by habit and default.

Please see my website to find out more about psychoanalytic psychotherapy and my approach.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified psychoanalytic psychotherapist with over thirty years experience in London and the Milton Keynes area. I have worked with individuals from a wide range of cultural backgrounds, abilities, and differing sexual orientations.

For a number of years I have worked within an NHS Hospital Psychotherapy Department. I have provided psychotherapeutic assessments, clinical supervision, and consultancy on psychotherapy and counselling services, for a number of individuals and organisations.

I currently work with adults in private practice, and adolescents in an educational setting. Originally trained at WPF Therapy, I am a training therapist with the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC) and registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC).

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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 Psychoanalytic Council (BPC)

The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) is a professional association, representing the profession of psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.

BPC registrants are governed by a code of ethics, a policy of continuing professional development, a statement on confidentiality and a complaints procedure. The BPC is a Member Society of the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the Public Sector (EFPP). Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.


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.
