Carlos Calvet Ortin
Have you lost someone and feel that you need to talk about it?
Do you find yourself in a moment of your life where all the options seem closed to you?
Is life at the moment just too complicated or are you finding it overwhelming?
I can listen and help you to put into words all those things that you need to let out. Sometimes expressing your difficulties to someone, at your pace, your way, is in itself powerful.
Since I started my training I have specialised in bereavement. I still feel that every client I meet teaches me something new about what it is to be living with loss. Over these years I have learned that when there is understanding there is movement forward and hope.
Bereavement can trigger many different emotions and reactions depending on the particular circumstances, which are by their nature unique for each person. It also often brings out wider unresolved issues. I will be there for you with whatever you bring into our space.
In the current situation, I am working online, using platforms such as Zoom, Skype and FaceTime. I also work over the phone, if that seems a better option for you. It is important that you find a medium that you feel comfortable with.
I charge £25 per session.
I like to discuss with my clients the way they feel they want to work. There is no rigid agenda. Goals and approaches are talked over during the sessions. Sometimes they can be redefined as the needs change or the work evolves.
I find it important to follow the client's lead and stay always by their side, I am a true believer in the client's inner wisdom. However, I am happy to provide a more directive and structured method when clients wish.
As an integrative counsellor, I believe that the only framework that truly works is the one which is fluid enough to adapt to the client’s personal circumstances and needs.
I am also a Spanish speaker so I can alternatively provide therapy in this language.
Our first session
The first session is the moment to get to know each other and gives you an opportunity to talk about the reasons that brought you to counselling. You may want to use this session to ask questions about me, how I work or to express what goals you would like to achieve during our time working together.
This session is exploratory for both of us. It is also about us finding out if we can work together.
If either of us considers that our working together would not be appropriate or convenient, I won't charge for the session. However, if we both feel we could work together my policy is to charge for the session.
If you would like to know more about my approach, please do get in contact.

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.
