Christine Andreasen (PGDip., Reg. BACP)
People seek counselling for many reasons. There is no rule for what you should and should not attend counselling for. Whether you are facing a challenging phase in your life, suffer from anxiety or depression, want to improve your emotional health, change recurring patterns of thought or behaviour, have relationship or sexual issues or perhaps need to talk to someone in a non-judgemental and confidential environment - counselling can help.
Seeking counselling can often feel intimidating or scary, but I am here to facilitate a safe, supportive and confidential space for you, where you can explore what is going on in your life. How we work depends on what you bring to the session and what you feel comfortable with. The choice is always yours.
My main areas of practice and experience are:
Loneliness and issues around belonging
Lack of meaning
Coping with change
Sex and sexuality
I have a Diploma in Integrative Psychosexual Therapy. Psychosexual therapy can help you explore and resolve issues around your sensual and sexual self, either with a partner, partners or as an individual. If you think you could benefit from psychosexual counselling please get in touch.
Psychosexual therapy can help you explore and resolve issues around
- Your sensual and sexual self
- Shame around sexual desire or preferences
- Lack of desire
- Arousal difficulties
- Sexual health
- General anxiety around sexual issues
I am respectful of all gender, sexual and relationship diversities. Whatever you bring to the sessions we will discuss in a sensitive way and work through with encouragement, knowledge, and understanding.

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.

My core training was in Psychosynthesis, which is a holistic and integrative model drawing from many schools of psychology. As well as looking at the past it also looks at your present experiences, aspirations and hopes. The model can help us better understand our patterns of behaviour, our personality and our inner life and can lead to a greater ease with yourself, a stronger ability to make choices and clarity on what is really important to you.
