Christian Stevens - MBACP Diploma Counsellor
Hello and welcome. My name is Christian and I offer a professional counselling service at a comfortable, private and safe space.
Finding the right person to talk can be overwhelming and feel like an impossible task. I hope that I can make that task as simple as possible.
I am a Humanistic Intergrative Counsellor who works in a personal centred way.
I believe that everyone has the capacity to change, heal and grow.
Life can be difficult. It can present events and experiences that can stay with you forever. It can take a lot of faith and courage to be able to walk through these events. I understand that this can be a difficult task.
I offer that safe space where you can heal and grow from such events. A place where we can try and find that calm and quiet place within. I believe we all have the potential to find that place.
I have a wide area of knowledge and understanding. With that comes a continued growth of experience.
I have worked in various fields: drug and alcohol addiction services, trauma and abuse and I have also worked with a lot of bereavement and grief.
I have also gained experience working in health & social care with various mental health conditions.
I continue to work with a specialist victim support unit, dealing with different forms of abuse.
My latest role allows me to work directly with vitims and survivors of physical, psychological and emotional abuse.

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.
