Chris Faulkner MBACP Counsellor and Psychotherapist
I am a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist offering therapy to individual clients aged 18+.
I believe passionately that you are individual and unique and place you at the heart of the therapeutic journey. I offer a warm, empathic and judgement free space from in which you can begin to express feelings around what's bothering you. A single event or a number of small regular events in life can affect your internal equilibrium and provoke feelings of confusion, anger, sadness or loneliness to name but a few. By forming a trusting therapeutic relationship, I walk alongside you and help you to try and make sense of feelings and help identify any issues that could be preventing you living life with maximum potential.
Working from prestigious practices in Farnham, Guildford and Godalming, I am able to offer therapy across SW Surrey and NE Hampshire
As a native speaker of Spanish, I also offer Spanish speaking therapy to the Hispanic community.
Soy un psicólogo de nacionalidad española que ofrece terápia en Surrey y Hampshire para toda la comunidad hispanoparlante.

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).
