Carlos McCormack Rodriguez MBACP Registered Member (Dip Couns)
I am a BACP registered Gestalt Counsellor, I offer short term and long term solution focused therapy.
I provide a supportive, non-judgemental and confidential space for you which is compassionate, understanding, professional and focused.
People I work with have stated that in working with me they have experienced improvements in their life, from increased emotional robustness, mental strength to a stronger sense of self and in turn confidence and self esteem, also increased awareness and improvements in their relationships with partners, family and friends.
I understand that searching for a therapist can be daunting, I work with clients according to their needs, together we explore what has brought you to therapy and what you wish to get from it, we then work together towards achieving this.

My work has brought me to work with many agencies, both in therapy and mediator roles; social services, law enforcement, GP's, also drug, alcohol and mental health services.

Both organisations provide high quality therapy and in order to be part of their core teams only the more qualified and skilled therapists are invited to join.
I have also facilitated personal development groups in the south east region, here individuals attended to increase their awareness and understanding of who they were. I worked to assist the group members sense of self, internal sense of freedom, self esteem and confidence.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy, and I adhere to the high standards and ethical framework for this membership.
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).

Other areas of counselling I deal with
I have much experience working with trauma, abuse, shame and personality disorders, I have a keen interest in working to increase peoples self worth, self esteem and to understand and complete past unresolved experiences.
Also I have experience working with anxiety, depression, and family or relationship issues. Also I have many years experience working around addictions such as substances, relationships, work and sex.
I work with all my clients in order for them to lead fulfilling lives.
I work to unblock, unravel and clear any confusion which prevents people from fully being who they truly are and what they wish to achieve.
I travel on this journey with those I work with in order to find solutions and understanding through exploration together.
After a decade working with people committed to their personal development, I have seen great changes and achievements with those I have worked with.
My fee is £80 per one to one session, and £100 for couples in both my Beckenham and Sevenoaks practices, and for home visits also.
Payments can be made in cash or by credit/debit card at the beginning or end of each session.
A single session is 50 minutes in length, I also provide double sessions or longer and usually these are weekly but can be more frequent depending on circumstances and the needs of my clients.
I currently have some availability at various times in the daytime and evening in my Beckenham practice, and I currently carry out home visits in the Sevenoaks, Tunbridge Wells and surrounding areas.
I have two private practices, these are based in Beckenham (Southend Rd), Sevenoaks (St John's Rd), I also provide home visits in the whole west Kent region.
For home visits the only prerequisite is having a confidential space within your home where we can explore whatever you wish to work through.
I carry out visits across the south east and London and in a variety of different locations, homes or hospitals.
